Interesting article to read, looks like BHX service maybe going daily soon!

Source: thehindubusinessline.com

recently in London

How often does the Chief Executive of an airline walking around the aircraft to check on the well-being and comfort of the passengers? That is precisely what Mr V. Thulasidas, Chairman and Managing Director, Air India, did on the inaugural run of Air-India's flight on the Delhi-Amritsar-Birmingham-Toronto sector on the newly leased Boeing-777 aircraft.

The CMD not only walked around the aircraft collecting the business cards of the passengers, but also stood in the galley talking in fluent Bengali with the cabin crew on the problems they faced.Returning to his seat at the front of the aircraft, the CMD who has just about completed 16 months on the job, spoke to Business Line on a variety of issues connected with the airline.

Passenger demand for the newly launched flight from Amritsar


There is great passenger demand for the Birmingham flight, even in
the business class.

The inaugural flight was jam-packed and the flight is booked for the
next two months. There is strong demand from the market to make the
flight a daily one. (At present, the flight operates three times a
week).

This is one route that we have to service. The airline is also
looking at providing surface transportation to passengers travelling
on this flight and wanting to go to Heathrow airport in London.

this topis is already being discussed in another thread, and it was reported the CMD later corrected himself that the first flight was "not" jam-packed.
no definate news if it is going to be daily any time soon.

Aseem....

What thread is that? as for the "flight was not jam packed" someone is not telling the truth as an article in the local news paper in BHX and the press release on BHX.co.uk also stated that the first flight arrived @ BHX full and departed BHX full? I'm confused.....

From what I read on another forum, the first inbound flight to BHX had 71 onboard, and outbound to YYZ had 170 pax.


Booked it, Packed it, f*cked off!
