No future for the low-cost airline in India?
India is not a suitable country for low-cost airline operations as it not only lacks infrastructure like low-cost secondary airports but also the cost of their staff is at par with full service carriers (FSC), a study has claimed. Also, the low fare carriers (LFCs) have to face tough competition from Indian Railways and road transport for destinations of shorter durations. “India has very few secondary airports from which the low fare carriers could operate. Of the 127 airports with the Airports Authority of India, only 80 are operational,” aerospace expert Harmoz P Mama claimed in a study ‘Civil Aviation in India : Challenges and Prospects´.

Yes this is right because the low-cost tariff model for an airline business in India is suffering lack of infrastructure. We don’t have2nd tier airports to cater low cost airlines, means all fees (airport charges for Airlines) are the same for both regular full service airlines and low-cost airline. Low-cost airlines reduce fares by cutting in-flight service and making use of cheaper airports or we can say 2nd tier airports. But in India we don’t have any tier 2 airports to cater these discounted carriers like we have in Europe and USA a major market for Low-Cost Airlines. Government should make some plans for the development of a separate terminal (No frills airport) for these carriers and should do more in order to promote budget air travel. If we really care and if India really needs this Low-Cost Airlines then government should put focus on infrastructure development which is a major requirement for this aviation industry and for also better economy health.

Pakistan: Over 60 JuD leaders detained but no evidence so far
It may not be too hard to believe, but a Pakistan Government still looking for proofs. I have no idea what sort of proofs or evidence they are talking about but yes I am sure about one thing now that Pakistan Government are totally blind or at least acting as a blind and deaf person when it comes to see proofs, evidence and listen to their own Leaders like Nawaz Sharif. From Rice to Gordon Brown has told Pakistan leadership that India does have a solid evidence against all JUD, LET and ISI terrorist, in fact India did shared some of the evidence with them but What I can say?
Islamabad, Dec 19 (PTI) More than 60 leaders of the outlawed outfit Jamaat-ud-Dawah have been detained by Pakistani authorities, though no evidence linking them to the Mumbai attacks has been found so far, the Interior Ministry said today. Intelligence and security agencies have detained the Jamaat leaders, including its chief Hafiz Mohammed Saeed, as part of the ongoing crackdown on the group designated as a terrorist outfit by UN Security Council.
Pakistan leaders are good Actors but unfortunately dumb also at the same time. They think because all Pakistani leadership are blind or at least can act as a blind person so the world… But WE ARE NOT blind….We Can See and WE WILL SEE…..And WE WILL MAKE SURE YOU ALSO SEE

US Senator. JohnKerry urges resumption of Pakistan-India talks: Crisis caused by misunderstanding
While reading Dawn Newspaper today I caught up with news in which US Senator John Kerry urging India for the resumption of Pakistan-India talks: Crisis caused by misunderstanding. It comes as no surprise as we already know that most of time USA choose to play double standard policy when it’s come to war on terrorism.
Mr. John Kerry let me be very clear with you that this crisis is not created by miscommunication or misunderstanding, but because of Pakistan only talk, talk and no action attitude. We have clearly communicated to Pakistan just after Mumbai attack what we want from them, what we expect from them in this moment of atrocity. We have been very clear in our communication so there is no question of misunderstanding.
All methods of proper communication have been played properly and in very precise way to communicate Pakistan Government from diplomatic to media channels. If Pakistan can’t understand its obligations and responsibility towards world then it’s her problem not India’s. We need action not just word. So it would be better for you if you can communicate your Pakistani counterparts again in a polite way, because from Rice to Gordon Brown has done their job but Pakistan is still acting like a spoiled child and if its continues with this attitude then we know the better way to communicate with them and make them understand our language.
