It's great to see Air India expanding it's frequency to Dubai..but I have a question: why will the aircraft be ferried back to BOM rather than have a regular, scheduled flight? If this is a stupid question please forgive me, I'm not familiar with it.

Looking at the booked loads for those days, all the DXB-BOM flights are wide open (while BOM-DXB are ridiculously oversold). In a situation like that, you save a lot of costs by operating an empty ferry back rather than a virtually empty passenger flight.
