You'll have to wait for the 'rustbuckets' from KL and NZ for that to happen.

An airplane might disappoint any pilot but it'll never surprise a good one.

I think they should get the A330 which will complement their fleet excellently

You will be very surprised: I just talked to s/o from IC Techs, who was in our office (private matters). he told me

- that most likely the A330 will be leased due to pilot unrest about the B767
- that the A320 deal should be concluded by mid of June

I just don't understand why IC would fly to London... please correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought both IC and AI were owned by the Indian Govt... if that's true, and AI already flies to London, why would IC? Thanks!

Welcome to the secrets of the GOI... I doubt anyone here understands this, regardless of the confusion amongst us to have two state-owned carriers that compete against each other...
