Indian Civil Aviation Secretary Ajay Prasad said in Singapore today , Air India is looking for funds to finance a 50 long haul planes order.
He also added that there will be no problem to find them.
The order will be split between long range 350 seaters planes and medium capacity long range 250 seaters
INITIAL deliveries calls for September 2006 !!!!!!!!!
In the battle are : A340-500/777-200LR/777-300ER/A340-600/A330-200/7E7-8 !!!!!!!!!!!!! No more A340-300s.

Final decision should be taken before the end of March.

This time should be the good one !!!!!!!!!!!



Air India Express will beginn on March27th with the first delivery of their 737-800s.


Indian Al should received 9 wide bodies (Types ?) , beginning on November to open new international routes.

After , all the new Indian LCCs came and will come , India seems to wake up seriously !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hope all will be realised !!!!!!!

The process for acquiring an airplane in India seems more Byzantine than any process than the acutal Byzantine empire could have possibly devised. Given the dozens of false starts in the past and resulting threads, I would not believe it until deposits are put down for new airplanes.

If we held our breaths from now until the Indian Govt. actually signs and puts the order in...no one will be alive then! I'm not going to jump for joy in March when the "announce" their decision.

I'm sure the planes will be ordered by 2015. Perhaps AI can make do with some 707s until then and wet lease another 100 or so A-310's.  Smile

Maybe there is hope despite my sarcasim. I think AI still has so much unrealized potential. That having been said, I'm an Indian born in the USA who has not flown Air India back to India since 1980.

It's already to beginning...according to Reuters via Airwise, they will decide in June and not March whether to buy Boeing or Airbus.

In the interim, Air Rwanda, Air Burundi, or Nigeria Airways must have some second hand Airbus A310s Air India can pick up.

I know what you mean.. often one experiences, even if one desparately wants to book AI, that any other alternatives is more convenient, either because AI does not offer suitable connections (Hub and Spoke, as well as Point to Point).. my girlfriend came over from SIN to India, and I tried everything (without her kmowing Big grin ) to push her in AI, end she ended up with UL, because AI just did not offer that what we wanted to.. I ended up on TG, since AI does serve every single city in India from SIN except CCU... what a management

N79969, do you know the Simpsons episode where Illegal immigrants are urged to leave the country... when they discuss Apu's status in the end, being an Indian  Big thumbs up - just kidding.. Since I am Indian and US-born, too, I just claim both for me, probably same as KKfla737  Big grin

Native Indians are the real Indians. Oops! sorry, Americans. So, who are these Indians and Americans? It is so confusing. Who are Asians? Indians are not asians? Again what is going on. Are people here crazy?
Everything depends on how the North Americans define things and how they see you. But still who cares.  Confused

Back to the topic, when is AI coming to YYZ? Why can't they choose BOM over DEL. They could get more Pax from BOM than DEL as Amritsar and DEL are not too far away. Sorry if I sound ignorant.

when is AI coming to YYZ?

Lets wait and see if AI have applied for it.

Hopefully there will be a published list of who has applied for what once all of the submissions have been made or failing that once the rights have been allocated.

Air India is coming to YYZ in May/2005 from Amritser via Birmingham 3/wk.
Amritser is being chosen becuase of the Huge Punjabi population in Toronto.
Anyways, AI would have full flights to BOM, DEL, AMS, AMD, HYD from YYZ.

Oh GawD! Another "Ai considers this" and orders that kind of post! Wake up folks! this is Air India, Indias national shame: which is still stuck in an era that the rest of India has left behind.

Air India doesnt deserve to get any more help from the Govt of India to purchae planes or whatever else. This airline needs to be shutdown and its assets transferred to IC or other state carriers who can do a far better job.

AI are leasing some ex UA B772ERs so this could help to get more B777 models in the fleet.

With this statement coming from Indianguy, I take it's complete nonsense?

Sean could you help me out?


Also, anybody have any ideas on which company is more likely to win the order? Didn't AI just receive their first 777?
