The Times of India is reporting that India’s Kingfisher Airlines (named after a beer, mind you) is in talks to purchase MAXjet. Kingfisher’s owner has made it clear that he would like to own an airline in the US, which he can’t do since he’s not a citizen. But his kids are, so he’s hoping they can buy it. In any case, he wants a foothold in the US to give him rights to fly to India. MAXjet is vehemently denying a sale. I’m shocked — shocked! — you can’t always believe what you read in the newspaper.
