Kingfisher Airlines to pay Rs. 14,000 to Flier for loss of luggage




Kingfisher Airlines has been asked by a consumer forum in New Delhi to pay a compensation of Rs. 14,000 to a flier for losing his luggage in transit from Srinagar to Delhi.

The South West District Consumer Disputes Redressal Forum held that the airlines' failure to recover the baggage was a deficiency in its service.

"Failure to trace out the missing bag of the complainant admittedly reported on July 27, 2007 constitute deficiency in service on the part of opposite party (Kingfisher Airline)," said the bench presided by Narendra Kumar.


The forum, however, refused to grant the claim of over Rs. 48,000 sought by the flier, Delhi resident Chander Prakash, saying "it is unexpected of any prudent man to keep valuable jewellery in the baggage while boarding a flight when it is permissible to carry such valuable articles in a hand bag."

"We, therefore, do not find it believable that the missing bag of complainant contained any valuable jewellery, especially when there is no declaration filed on record."

In his complaint, Mr Prakash had said that when he arrived at Indira Gandhi International Airport from Srinagar on July 27, 2007, he found his bag missing.

He said he had informed the airline's officials and had also filed a property irregularity report, but his bag could not be traced out.

Kingfisher had contended in its defence that it had sent details of Mr Prakash's missing luggage to all-India tracer, but his bag was not found anywhere and even if it was assumed to be lost the airline's is only liable to pay Rs. 300 per kg.

The forum accepted the airline's contention that its liability in case of missing baggage extends to only Rs. 300 per kg and said that since the maximum luggage permitted on board per flier for free is 30 kgs, Kingfisher will have to pay Prakash Rs. 9,000 towards his lost bag and Rs. 5,000 as cost of litigation.

Recession Babies may be more likely to be Teen Delinquents


A new analysis of data on U.S. teens born during the early 1980s ties slightly higher rates of adolescent smoking, drinking, arrests and thefts to macroeconomic conditions during the first year of life.






What was "striking for us was it basically went across all socioeconomic strata," said Dr. Seethalakshmi Ramanathan, the lead author of the study. "From a national level, it seems like everyone is affected."

Ramanathan's study focused on babies born around the time of the recessions of 1980-1981 and 1982, when unemployment rates around the nation ranged from 6.6 percent to 11.25 percent, but she said she wouldn't be surprised if the most recent recession also has a lasting impact.

"The mechanisms involved maybe different in intensity and severity, (but) based on the study it seems like there would be some effects," said Ramanathan, a researcher at State University of New York Upstate Medical University.

Earlier research has suggested that widespread economic strain might negatively impact kids in the short term.
One group of researchers found that the rate of serious physical abuse towards children spiked as the U.S. economy crashed in 2007.

To get some sense of how recessions might affect children long term, Ramanathan and her colleagues used a 1997 survey of nearly 9,000 children who were born in the U.S. between 1980 and 1984.

The questions asked about drug, alcohol and gun use, arrests, theft and other behaviors.
The researchers were able to determine the economic circumstances for the region in which each kid spent his or her first two years of life.

They found that some of the delinquent behaviors were more common among children who were surrounded by higher unemployment during infancy.

For instance, the teens were nine percent more likely to use marijuana if the region where they celebrated their first birthday experienced a one percent drop in employment during the early 1980s.

This means that instead of 20 out of every 1,000 kids smoking pot, the increased risk in higher unemployment regions would result in 23 pot smokers out of every 1,000 teens.
Such an increase nationwide would result in 115,000 additional pot smokers, the group estimates in its report, published in the Archives of General Psychiatry.

"That's a big number when you look at it," Ramanathan told Reuters Health.
The risks for being arrested, joining a gang, stealing, and using alcohol and tobacco also increased between 6 percent and 17 percent among kids who were babies in areas experiencing a spike in unemployment.
The findings held up regardless of whether the kids grew up in wealthy homes or poor ones.
"These results suggest that, irrespective of socioeconomic status, unfavorable economic conditions during infancy may create circumstances that can have an adverse effect on the psychological development of the infant and lead to the development of behavioral problems," the authors wrote in their study.
Assault, and the use of hard drugs or guns, however, were not affected by employment rates.
Ramanathan said it's not clear why certain behaviors were more likely in regions impacted by the recessions.
"People have talked about how economic stability can help parents invest in the child's development and how economic instability can affect family dynamics and the ability to be an effective parent," she said.
But she added that this is speculation, and more studies need to unravel the factors that are taking root in infancy and spilling out in teenage delinquency.
"We can't say high unemployment caused the effects. We don't know what the mediating factors are," Ramanathan said.

Tu-204 of Russian Airline Crashed at Vnukovo Airport.


A passenger Airliner careered off the runway at Russia’s third-busiest Airport and partly onto a highway while landing on Saturday, broke into pieces and caught fire, killing at least four people.

Officials said there were eight people aboard the Tu-204 belonging to Russian airline Red Wings that was flying back from the Czech Republic without passengers to its home at Vnukovo Airport.

Emergency officials said in a televised news conference that four people were killed and another four severely injured when the plane rolled off the runway into a snowy field and partly onto an adjacent highway, then disintegrated. No
 collisions with vehicles on the major, multilane highway were reported.

The plane’s cockpit area was sheared off from the fuselage and the tail section partly torn away.

The crash occurred amid snow and winds gusting up to 15 meters a second (30 mph), but other details were not immediately known. A spokesman for Russia’s top investigative agency, Vladimir Markin, said initial indications were that pilot error was the cause.

The state news agency RIA Novosti cited an unidentified official at the Russian Aviation Agency as saying another Red Wings Tu-204 had gone off the runway at the international airport in Novosibirsk in Siberia on Dec. 20.   The agency said that incident, in which no one was injured, was due to the failure of the plane’s engines to go into reverse upon landing and that its brake system malfunctioned.

On Friday, the Aviation Agency sent a directive to the Tupolev company’s president calling for it to take urgent preventive measures.

The plane that crashed Saturday took off from Pardubice airport in the Czech Republic. Jan Anderlik, the director of the company that operates the airport, told Czech public television that the plane underwent a regular technical check before takeoff and no problems were discovered.
Prior to Saturday’s crash, there had been no fatal accidents reported for Tu-204s, which entered commercial service in 1995. The plane is a twin-engine midrange jet with a capacity of about 210 passengers.

The Red Wings airline is one of the holdings of Russian billionaire Alexander Lebedev, who also owns the British newspapers The Independent and the Evening Standard.
Vnukovo, on the southern outskirts of Moscow, is one of the Russian Capital’s three International Airports.

Kingfisher Airlines Ltd loses Flying Permit




Despite all its efforts Kingfisher Airlines, on Monday, lost its flying licence as the Directorate-General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) refused to renew its Air Operator Permit (AOP) without a viable turnaround plan. Kingfisher, as desired by the DGCA, also failed to furnish no objection certificates from service providers, more specifically the Airports Authority of India (AAI), before the deadline. The airline’s flying licence, which was suspended in October after a workers’ strike, was scheduled for renewal on December 31, 2012, but the aviation regulator wanted a more comprehensive restart plan before renewal of permit.

DGCA officials said that they were not satisfied with Kingfisher’s assurances and needed more clarity before giving their nod. Director-General of Civil Aviation Arun Mishra did not receive calls to spell out the regulator’s stance and about Kingfisher’s future.

The non-renewal of permit is not the end for Kingfisher as the airline can apply for renewal of licence within two years. But as per Monday’s development, the airline has become defunct as it is no more a scheduled operator.

Now the airline has to convince lenders, airport owners, tax authorities and employees about its viability and get no objection certificates. On Monday, Kingfisher was negotiating with the AAI for a clearance but it did not come.

“Kingfisher Airlines (had) applied for renewal of its licence as a scheduled carrier. Subsequently, we submitted a restart and rehabilitation plan to the DGCA and also attended meetings to respond to queries. The plan itself clearly states that the funding required would be provided by The UB Group,” Kingfisher Airlines said in a statement.

“The DGCA has asked for certain no objection letters which are in the process of being procured. Further, a few additional questions have been raised which will be answered to the regulator’s satisfaction,” the statement added.

“Despite the impending expiry of its licence tonight [Monday], there is no cause for concern as the regulations permit licence renewal within two years of expiry. Kingfisher Airlines is confident of securing approval from the DGCA on the restart plan, licence approval and reinstatement of its AOP,” Kingfisher spokesperson said.
