I would think maybe it would be wise to go via Singapore or Kuala Lumpur for that matter. I think both Chennai and Mumbai can be reached by a B737-400 from SIN or KUL. Is there many Indians in Indonesia?

There are quite some Indians in Indonesia, they even has an Indian school in Jakarta, also Hinduism is the majority religion in Bali which is the same with India and I think Air India has a service to the island for pilgrimage purpose.

I just hope Garuda still will proceed their plan on replacing DC-10 with 772. They can use it for the new service to India Big grin

Considering the fact that Indonesia and India have had close links, I have found it strange that GA did not have a consistent schedule to India. Yes apart from the fact that they have a significant number of citizens of Indian origin especially from Southern India, GA should also do well considering that their immediate neighbours SQ and MH have both thrived in India in recent years.

Why did they quit India in the first place?

I think they quit India because of the economic crisis..... they also stop the US service and some of the Europe route too.... But they said that they are recover now... and looking to re open some of their old route....

They quit India much before the economic crisis, like some time in the late 80's or early 90's.
