The route will be VABB (not ABB ie BOM-SFO) - KSFO - KSEA as the Worldliner finishes this leg of the 'Going the Distance' tour.

Yup, Sixteen hours trans-polar, the pilots reckoned it should take 16 hours 20 minutes (plus/minus 1 hour). With a couple of reps from AI and 9W on board to show off BOM-West Coast range. I think this is the longest the Worldliner has done to date.

There's nothing posted about a stop at SFO on the "Going the Distance" tour.
Not even a press release.

Well, the Press Conference happened in DEL yesterday and I was there. VABB is the four letter code for BOM, its quite likely they missed the 'V'.

Anyone who is interested pop back to this topic on Saturday when I'll have the gate number and slot time. The guy I had to go through didn't know about it so I'm going to guess that it's pretty low-key stop for fuel and to show AI reps what the bird is made of.

Take care,

Matt

If I see no responces Saturday night I'll pop off e-mails to those in the topic with the information.

It will definitely be brought into the International Terminal. If it is in the Morning, plan on Terminal A. In the afternoon, Terminal G.
