My Indian friend (not a plane enthusiast) commented to me that it is very traditionalist and what an Indian would expect a plane to look like.

Apparently they don't go much for Eurowhite or odd schemes in India.

I have probably been under a rock for the last three months. Sorry.
Wasn't the order mix supposed to have been six -200LRs and four -300ERs ?
When did that change ?

You got it. I think 9W changed their minds between the time they announced the order and the time they signed the final contract. That's 9Ws perogative I suppose. Nonetheless it's still excellent news for both Boeing and 9W! I don't discount the possibility of them buying the 772LR later on.



That which does not kill me makes me stronger.

I agree. They did specify 10 options as part of the original LoI. I suspect the current purchase is to satisfy immediate capacity.

I cant explain AIX but as for KingFisher, their logo is the same as on their famous beer bottles.

Coming to the topic, the 777-300ER seems the best bet nowadays and the timing of a 2007 arrival could'nt be perfect especially since the lease on the SA 343 should be ending around that time and as mentioned by 9W the 77W would immediately replace them on the BOM/DEL-LHR terminators and are going to be used for USA expansions.

What USA destinitions we shall be seeing in about two years.

BOM-JFK
BOM-LHR-SFO
DEL-LHR-IAD
BOM-LHR-LAX
BOM-LHR-ORD

*Assuming they hub at LHR

Also can the 77W make BOM-JFK profitabally without any range and payload issues, non-stop.

Ofcourse the 332 are reserved for secondary Indian markets and to service EU and S.E. Asian destinations.

Really sad indeed, but then good for AI in a way as they will be able to perform routes like IAH/SFO non-stop from their BOM/DEL hubs.

Well, they were supposed to start BOM-BRU-EWR service this past June, but something happened to mess things up, unfortunately.

true, as long as some come to SFO with it, I won't complain..but I would have enjoyed seeing some 9W's grace the 28's @SFO....

There is that pesky lawsuit they have with Jet Airways Inc. which has prevented them from getting USDoT approval to operate to the US. It appears that the resolution to this problem is not too far away and they may start the BOM-BRU-EWR route from late October:

It is more than 400nm less than the max range, so it should work

Most likely

Non-stop for the sake of going non-stop seems to be losing favour lately. Especially with the Indian market.

A mid-way stopover is not just perceived as "of value" by many who comprise the traffic on this route, but also essential from the health and sanitation point of view.

Moreover, even with city-pairs between India and North America like BOM-xyz and DEL-abc, a large number of passengers would end up going beyond.

The thinking with at least one airline here in India is to try to run "multiple scissors" in and out of one-stop points in Europe and the Far East. BA and LH have been doing it for decades.

And with the increased advent in larger numbers of the high-spend Indian tourist, expect way-point stopover counties and their airports to pitch for Indian stopver business in a big way. Brussels is just the first, seems Seoul is working hard at it too.

What the Indian consumer expects and what an airline paints on its planes are two different things. Not all will bow to the the consumers expectations of livery. Nothing wrong with trying to change that expectation.

+++

I know there are longer flights, and I have been on a few, as I am sure have you and many others too. I don't want to do a TPE-LAX or HKG-LAX again, would rather go via ICN or NRT, when originating from DEL or BOM, for example.

In most cases such flights (trans-Pacific, for example) are operated because mid-point stoppages of tourist interest don't exist. In the few where they do exist, the one-stop options have not folded up (Toronto - Delhi, Singapore - Los Angeles, for example) in fact they do better.

Research and validation on effects of ultra-long range flights is still a young subject, but there is enough on the topic to generate a healthy debate on whether such flights are good for crew as well as passenger health or not.

Especially for passengers travelling economy in cramped conditions. And that is what fills up the plane, not the First/Business or Crew beds.

And let us not even start talking about what the interiors of an aircraft running full on ANY route in the world feel and smell like after a 12 hour flight. Leave alone 16-18. One baby with a bad stomach is enough.
