BOMBAY (XFNews -ASIA) - Jet Airways is considering an early out-of-court
settlement with Air Sahara following the failure of their 500 mln usd
merger deal, the Economic Times reported, citing unnamed sources.
The newspaper cited sources as saying that Jet and Sahara have been advised that a protracted legal battle will not benefit either side.
Both Jet and Sahara went to court after the deal collapsed, over money lodged in escrow accounts earlier.
A Sahara group executive was quoted as saying: "Our legal team is working overtime, and it is too premature to talk about out-of-court settlement."
