Have been lurking around here for a long time. Recently joined airliners.net.
Was looking at Air India schedule between Ahmedabad(AMD) and Mumbai(BOM) and astonished to note thrice a week operation with B-757. Further digging around, figured out that it is a BOM-AMD-KWI run. It operates

Quoting HAWK21M (Reply 4): Def Not a B757 in AI Fleet.The only B757s I've observed departing BOM are Ethiopean & Blue Dart Freighters.
Although B757 is operated from Ahd by a Finnish carrier.
I saw it today land, as i was waiting for my dealyed GO Air departure to BLR for the airshow around 0830 am, i clicked a photo which unfirtunately has not come out so good because of the light conditions.
Infact wat i mentioned yesterday being a Wet Lease A310 from a Turkish Carrier is actually a Wetlease 757-200 from a Turkish Carrier.
