I am at an airport lounge bored out of my mind and was wondering about the lack of 757s into and in India. Given that the 757 is a major aircraft, and India a relatively diverse aviation market, very few airlines have and do operate the type to India. Since, IC's controversial 320 pick over 757, there has been little love between the aircraft and the country.
AFAIK, there are NO operators of the type in India. Interesting as most emerging countries have new airlines start with older equipment. Of foreign carriers, I think the only 757 operators to India are T5 (ATQ, DEL) and RA (BOM, DEL) - CCU their oldest destination is now offline. In the immediate past, I remember HM (BOM), BI (CCU), and SQ briefly for a myraid of destinations.
