When Air India does sign the deal for their 20 new 787s, 5 777-200LRs, and 10 777-300ERs, where would they use them to?
Trash their old 747s, and perhaps keep 4-5 of the newest ones in service.
-New daily 787 nonstop from DEL/BOM to SFO/EWR/BOS/YZZ/IAH/HKG/BKK/SIN.
-Daily one-stop (via europe or asia) 777-300ER to LAX/ORD/JFK.
-Daily nonstop 777-200LR to LAX/ORD/JFK.
-Daily nonstop 777-300ER to LHR/CDG/Frankfurt/NRT.

No, think of it this way. They right now have a daily 744 to LAX. And a 787 + 777-300ER = a little bit more capacity than a 744. (which is ideal for future route expansion) So, for the passengers who are interested to travel direct to India, the 787 flight is for them. And passengers tansiting through say Frankfurt, use the 777-300ER flight. Hope it makes sence.
