Bad press for FastJet after major technical fault prompts long delays

IS THE MEDIA HONEYMOON OVER FOR FASTJET

The honeymoon with the local media appears to be over for FastJet, as Tanzania’s leading newspaper Daily News yesterday broke a story of how airline executives were dealing, or rather not dealing with a major delay, which hit the flights of the airline on Saturday until mid day Sunday. Local observers also questioned the airline’s contention that they actually do have three planes available in Tanzania, as none of the spare planes was available to operate the services which were cancelled or delayed for long, one supposedly out on a charter and not a word on the availability of the third plane which was described by an airline executive as unavailable for the day.

The story by Daily News can be accessed via this weblink http://dailynews.co.tz/index.php/local-news/16838-fastjet-services-disrupted and is quite self explanatory.
