Jet's jet operations are not getting any easier...

The troubled and beleaguered Indian airline Jet is facing more operation difficulties as a raft of international aircraft leasing firms are all set to ground more of Jet's jet's over unpaid bills and doubts over a government rescue deal could save the carrier.

It's being reported by local media that some lessors have begun the process for moving some aircraft out of India, to prevent Jet trying to fly them. “There’s some talk that the money is going to come but lessors have heard this for too long,” one anonymous leasing source told Reuters this week.

It is understood that nine aircraft have so far been grounded by various lessors, with an additional four on notice of imminent lease suspension.  It is also understood that two aircraft that are currently outside of India for maintenance reasons will not be returning to the airline, unless unpaid bills are settled.
