Given the rapdly growing air travel market in India, would an airline be successful in implementing the Japanese model of flying aging 747-200s/A343s/DC10s.. in all economy configurations between the major metroplotan cities ? Airlines would be able to fill the seats if the fares are attractive enough, I assume. What challenges exist in implementing this idea ?

Thanks for the responses.

The biggest challenge is infrastructure and bureaucracy , do you need more ?

Yes if the if the fares are attractive enough(lesser than train and bus fares) and oil prices remain stable, I guess it would be successful.

If amount of much traffic > number of airport slots, sure it can happen.

I think thats what Capt Gopinath of AD had suggested for the A380s. Smile
If Parking Bays Increase,Airports Widen & Political Interference Reduce.Yes.
