would also attract foreign investment after a senior Indian told
reporters rival Jet Airways was the front-runner to win
an investment from Etihad Airways.  
* The Gulf carrier could pay up to 15-18 billion rupees for a 24
percent stake in Jet, the official said, valuing Jet at 725 to
870 rupees per share, which would mark a premium of 25 to 50
