Kingfisher aircraft parked at airportKingfisher website down 43% of the time

Kingfisher Airlines is leaving a lot of money on the table, by having their site down 43% of the time. In the last 7 surveys we've conducted the Kingfisher website has been down in 3 of them. It's a good time for them to whisper a few words into the ears of their web hosting company (and remove any of Kingfisher's other consumable product from their desks, if it's making them fall asleep).

Jet Airways versus Jetlite

A sense of normality has returned, with Jetlite being cheaper than Jet Airways (remember, last week Jet Airways turned the world upside down by offering cheaper flights than their low-cost subsidiary, Jetlite).
