Until you hear something from LH don't believe it. Much as I would like to believe CCU is a good O&D destination, LH would be better off increasing frequencies to other Indian cities and start opns to Ahmedabad and Amritsar.
And I'm a Bengali born in Cal, so this isn't 'CCU bashing'.

Isn't happening for at least a year. Another article came out saying the flight would be operating this week, but it's just not true. Look for LH to be in CCU starting Dec 2006 at earliest. LH might be doing some random charter flights, but that's it until then.

Basically, the West Bengal CM got very excited and told the press all sorts of stuff and the press wrote everything without bothering to call up LH PR in Delhi (LH has a big India office and a PR agency in the capital) or Frankfurt.
Even if they did operate a flight by Winter 2006 I doubt it will be a daily and I guess LH will use their smallest long-haul jet (the 332?) for the route.

The (more or less) exact statement I saw on the TV was: "Lufthansa and American Airlines to start direct Kolkotta - New York flights."

When did pigs start flying?  Smile
