Just got a call from a Buddy AME whose attending the Airbus training on the A320 at Mumbai.According to him,KF will be bringing the first 14 A320s every 2nd Month for the 1st 14 Aircraft.And will start off on the Bom-Del sector with one A320 initially.
Mumbai & Delhi are the main bases initially.
According to the talk V.Malliya had with the staff of KF,He said that he could even consider the A380 if the load determines it.  Smile
All in all,looks like the 1st A320 will be in April & start out on schedule with PTv's.

Heard (do not remember where) , Air India Express will beginn in March27th.
Their first plane will be

VT-AXA 737-86Q C/N 30296 leased from Boullioun Aviation

Another one will be

VT-AXC 737-8BK C/N 33024 , this time leased from CIT Leasing.

So obviously they will not start with their own planes.

This was quite known already.. the fleet acquisition for AIX has to pass the same steps as the AI and IC ones.. so it coudl take sometime (but should be finalized - OK, lets say, - sometime this year

i saw that too---he was only stressing about the delays/lack of infrastructure and bad timings i.e most europe/usa flights arrive and depart after midnight.
The rest was on his family life----pretty damm boring

Royal Airways has launched it's LCC under the brandname "SpiceJet". No info on the type of aircraft though. As said earlier it could be the 737's.

Singapore Airlines slashes fares, S-E Asian skies to become hotter
NEW DELHI: Even before takeoff to destinations in South East Asia and London, the going will become hotter for private carriers Jet and Sahara.

In a pre-emptive move, which may trigger another round of fare cut in the South East Asian route, Singapore Airlines on Wednesday announced a 14-day limited period scheme whereby one can travel to Singapore and Kuala Lumpur for as low as Rs 13,100, or fly to Bangkok for Rs 16,500 and Hong Kong for Rs 17,500, exclusive of taxes.

To avail of the offer, travellers need to book their tickets online anytime between February 10 and 24, and can travel up to April 30. Malaysian Airlines, Thai Airways and Cathay Pacific are also expected to come out with similar offers, industry sources said.

the boom might go bust because of preemptive action by these established players....anyway enjoying the scene.
