"The airline is due to announce that this change in strategy is due to changing market conditions though according to our sources the real reason resides in the Indian Minister of Civil Aviation asking Air India management to reconsider their A340-300 order"

Looks like this leaves room to the GECAS 777LR rumour which has been going around here for some time. Interesting to see what developments go on during the next few weeks.

Will the 772LR be able to fly DEL-JFK nonstop? I imagine that is what they are shooting for.

Related to Air India, I think it is amusing that whenever I price NYC-LON for a weekend getaway on short notice, AI is the cheapest by far. Never even close. It would be great to do that on a new plane.



Keep on truckin'...

Yes, a 777-200ER and 777-300ER could do this as well. The 777-300ER (or maybe A346?) might be the aircraft of choice, well sized, very modern. At this point, just let them get *something*

Looks like this leaves room to the GECAS 777LR rumour which has been going around here for some time. Interesting to see what developments go on during the next few weeks.

It does indeed, but unless they plan to service South America, what do they need the 772LR for? Carrying huge payloads on B-market routes? Hot and high performance?

Umm, wouldn't Air-India mgmt know MORE about changing market conditions that the Minister of Civil Aviation? Can't he keep his nose out of Air-India affairs? If not, why not?







Panam, TWA, Ansett, Eastern.......AC next? Might be good for Canada.

Would, if the US-India bilateral gets reworked, AI be able to fly SFO-Mumbai, Delhi, or Bangalore nonstop? With the 772LR that is.

You people seem to have forgotten the A340-500 - an aircraft that makes perfect sense for AI's route network.

I doubt if Airbus will give up on the Air India deal. They're not exactly going to roll over and die now that the Minister has nixed the A343. They will probaly undercut the price on the A345 considerably to make it VERY competitive.

Are the planned acquisitions and the planned lease running parallel or will the lease definitely be on cost of the planned acquisition?? No idea what to believe anymore, will wait for given facts (so far the fact is only that nothing useful is happening..)

By the way, afaik the AI Board wanted to finish most of the leasing deals by Sep 1 due to the proposed tax.. any news, i.e. any deals fixed??

I am sure it has much more to do with politics then performance and market issues. There is no other reason a government official would get involved. With a lot of US company's shipping work over to India I am sure that the Indian government is trying to kiss a$$ to the US with the order.

Because India in spite of 14 years of liberalization at the edges is still run by a bloated bureacracy of corrupt greedy bureaucrats who over 40+ years have fine tuned a bloated socialist economy to further their own interests. As the Minister is at the top of this endless food chain, it is only natural that he and his countless minions at the so-called Aviation ministry will be rooting around the trough. There's money to be made in subcontracts for everything under the sun here - carpeting, seat fabrics, toilet paper (a larger 773 will naturally mean more loos than a smaller A345, so more in TP subcontracts), etc. India's bureaucrats and ministers will surprise even the most entrenched Soviet insider in their rapaciousnes and ability to bilk the public coffers.

True, but there is one other factor at work here, GECAS. GE Capital is rumored to be close to firming an LoI for 8 772LRs, and it has been stated that the leasor is not a current 777 customer and is located in Asia. Now all of the sudden, the A343 order at AI is cancelled, and they are working with GECAS for 777s of unannounced type....

Very true...Just speculation...I stand corrected

Since AI is state-owned.. no surprise

There are plenty of other state owned carriers all over the world who make the final decision as to funding for new aircraft with out getting involved with the carrier as to which aircraft to purchase. But as mentioned above I am not as familiar with Indian politics as some others here are.

Did you read the linked article? Obviously not.

It isn't dead. The bidding has been re-opened, Airbus could still pull it off.

However the original decision did seem flawed and a Boeing type package must be considered favourite for many reasons. None of which can be banked due to politicians being involved so deeply in the state-run Air India.

This is indeed an interesting info and comes perfectly with the Sep 1 deadline for teh leasing tax..

I think Jaysit has it right on...the Indian bureacracy is an entrenched, rigid system where buying a new aircraft of any kind takes a long time....don't hold your breath people.

I personally think that AI should stick to getting used 744's and used 343's. Cheap, easy, and easier to get through the bureacracy.

Finally, again only personally, I don't think I would trust AI with a ultra-long route like JFK-DEL OR ORD-DEL, because those flights are probably more than AI can chew maintenance wise. Just my opinion...

That is insulting and bordering on racist. Where is your evidence to support this?

Air India is a long-established international carrier. Just because there is a capital-acquisition issue doesn't mean that you can make totally unfounded accusations concerning their engineering.

They have operated 747s for many years, are you saying that they shouldn't have them? Or that PIA should have their 777s taken off them and the 772LR order cancelled? After all they are neighbours and the same kind of people...?

If it is "your opinion" then your opinion is disgraceful and insulting to Air India and its engineers.

Yeah, in that we all like biryani, paan, and Aishwarya Rai, . After that, the resemblances get murkier. In any case, AI engineering, from what I've heard, holds itself up to exacting standards that no babu's greedy paws can diminish.

Today's (Aug 30) Business Standard newspaper has an article as well. The article also says IA has been asked to scrap its 43 A320s plan as well.

A-I, IA told to submit new fleet plans

The government has scrapped Air-India (A-I) and Indian Airline’s (IA) fleet acquisition proposals. Around a fortnight ago, Civil Aviation Minister Praful Patel wrote to the two national carriers asking them to dump their respective fleet acquisition plans.

http://www.business-standard.com/common/storypage.php?hpFlag=Y&chklogin=N&autono=165588&leftnm=lmnu2&lselect=0&leftindx=2

Patel’s decision has profound implications for the two airlines’ plans because coming up with entirely new aircraft acquisition plans and obtaining government approval for them will take around a year or two. Also, Indian Airlines deal with aircraft manufacturer Airbus Industries to buy 43 aircraft may be cancelled. Indian Airline’s fleet acquisition proposal had reached the Cabinet approval stage after over two years of deliberation and discussion. The Indian Airlines board had cleared the proposal last year.

Edited to remove the annoying "Iraqi Airways" for "IA"

I think now the best thing to do is to wait and see what aircraft has been OFFICIALLY chosen rather than guess as we all know how often AIs mgmt heads as well as the Indian Govts mindsets change.
