Jet Airways, India’s largest private airline, reported net losses of Rs 406.69 crore for the second quarter ended September 20, down nearly 6 per cent from the same quarter last year.

The loss was mainly because of lower yield per seat following Jet’s decision to shift over half of its capacity to its low-cost service.

The shift of capacity to low-cost arm Jet Konnect was executed in May this year.

Jet Konnect fares are at least 25 per cent cheaper than full-service fares and a high load factor of 77 per cent did not offset the lower yield per passenger from cheaper fares.

Statements by Ambani brothers nudge shares up

The shares of companies in the respective stables of the two feuding Ambani brothers opened on a higher note Monday, a day after the olive branch from younger Anil, that was welcomed as a “positive indicator” by Mukesh.

🙂

Reliance Natural Resources, the energy arm of Anil Ambani group that is fighting a legal battle on gas supplies with the Mukesh-led group, was ruling at Rs. 86.35 with a gain of 4.04 percent, an hour into trading, after touching a high of Rs. 87.15.

Reliance Industries, the flagship of the Mukesh-led group, was quoting 1.58 percent higher at Rs. 2,133 after touching Rs. 2,140.00, data with the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) showed.

🙂

Analysts said though the movement forward was positive it was more in the form of a token rise, as many issues remained unresolved, including the crucial matter over supplies of gas from Reliance Industries to the Anil Ambani group.

“There are too many ifs and buts,” said Jagannadham Thunuguntla, equities head of leading brokerage and capital markets consultancy SMC Capital.

“Till the market gets a clear indication, these developments may not make too much of an impact.”

After a pilgrimage to two holy shrines Sunday, Anil sent a conciliatory message to elder brother Mukesh, saying there was ample scope to end their dispute amicably.

“There can be no better gift to my mother, Smt. Kokilaben Ambani, in her 75th year, and to the legacy of our beloved father, Shri Dhirubhai Ambani, the proud creator of the Reliance Group,” Anil said after the pilgrimage to Badrinath and Kedarnath.

🙂

The move was welcomed by the other side, which said there can be no contentious issue that cannot be resolved by mutual dialogue.

But the statement by Reliance Industries also made it clear that the dispute over gas has to be settled by the Supreme Court.
