Maybe this will get UA to start that ORD-DEL n/s they were talking about in 2001 (and selling tickets for  Wink).

Rono Datta was running UA when UA wanted to start this route  
I don't think he burned any bridges when leaving UA.

Wasn't Rono Dutta one of the UA executives that laid the groundwork for UA's current disaster?  stirthepot   duck

We will have to let the brains at UAL Management make that choice!

 Yeah sure

346 service to ORD is unlikely due to physical issues at ORD. Once for IB was OK, but regular service is unlikely at this point.

Can ORD not handle 346?



A conclusion is what you reach when you get tired of thinking.

I also thought that ORD wasn't able to handle the A346 on a daily basis becuase of the issues they had when IB has flown it there, but apparently LH is certified to handle the aircraft there without restrictions. Mabye it's just that IB staff just hasn't had the necessary training to handle the A346?

No- the length of the 346 means that taxiing becomes a significant issue on several parts of the field. As I alluded to in my last post, IB had a equipment sub for their customary 343 once in about September or last year, and although that went reasonably well (although it had to depart from T-5), day-in, day-out operations are not realistic at this point.

I could see Air Sahara ordering 772LRs for this route.


That which does not kill me makes me stronger.

But they would grab something on the lines of the A345, if they have any intention of starting it by the end of this year

I think a 3/4 engine airplane is necessary for the route simply because of engine out performance requirements over a route that includes the Himalaya mountains.

They might be able to bypass the Himalayas via PAK airspace

I dont see sahara going any place but its one a one way trip to going broke. All those 14 pilots who left to join AIX did so for a reason. The company as any pilot will tell you is a complete mess even big boss roy has done the dissapearing act rumored to be suffering from A cut I D epre S sion some say hes in coma in bombay. His press release in the economic times speaking of stress work load and reversible disorders is all crap hes in trouble and he knows it and so do his pilots. The exodus is going to increase and with AIX getting 4 more ac in jan 06 and offering the pilots bom/del base sahara is going to pack up this year for sure.

Isn't Air Sahara a CRJ operator? Where are they getting the money to acquire a 744/777/345/346, and operate a very long route against possible competition from much bigger, more established airlines?

I really can't visualize Air Sahara, of all airlines, being the first to fly ORD-DEL nonstop... More likely AI, UA, AA...

Pretty much. Rono Dutta and James Goodwin's ideas led to the horrible situation that UA is going through now. And that would be true even without the terrorist attacks in 2001.

If this is true, isn't Sahara biting off more than they can chew with this ultra-long haul flight?

I mean, ultra-long haul isn't cut out for even many major, legacy airlines and is currently limited to a few carriers, none of which is a startup like Sahara.
I like the flight and bravado exhibited here, but I think the gradual buildup a la Jet airways was more financially sound.
