Air India will lease a forth Boeing 767 aircraft; however this time being the 200 version.

Air India currently has three 767-300ERs on lease from two airlines:

The airline also has a single 757-200 from Golden Intl Airlines; TC-GLA.

Air India will also receive its first two A319s since the merger with Indian, they will be VT-SCG and VT-SCH.

A very interesting fleet for the airline. The carrier is also looking for more 777s and A330 (Which are not in the fleet).

Air India will loose VT-AIF as the aircraft will head for Martinair to be converted to a 744F.

I take it you mean fourth 767?
Anyhow, as far as I know they already secured 2x A332s, coming from Novair.
Can't wait to see the 744 in the new colours, and the new interior. I'm also wondering if AI will still be flying LHR-JFK/ORD, on the 744 or 777 as I am planning to take a trip?
I assume these planes are all only temporary?

The Air India B762 is in all white. It's the former Iraqi Airways plane which was returned to Teebah Airlines.

Unfortunately there is no picture on A.net or MyAv.net - only on JP.net....

The CSA A310 is also still with AI, right?

According to one of the airfleet sites they have lost VT-AIE.
And there is one ex-UA 744 listed as part of future fleet.

So, are the interior of these planes configured according to Air India's standards (ie. seats, service, interior design...) If not, Air India has large fleet inconsistencies.

I would highly doubt.

Having flown CS-TLQ and EuroAtlantic's policy, I don't think they are in AI style interior.

AI is really losing ground to 9W.

This aircraft has already been operating for over a month now spotted it a bt 2 weeks ago as it was landing in an all white livery, it seems to be operating largely middle eastern routes.

Saw it approach DEL the other day :-P looks quite sad. Of course, so many 767's means that the 313 fleet must be in a really bad way.

Can anyone confirm the EuroAtlantic CS-TLQ will continue flying for Air India?
The aircraft was there for 6 months, now started a check C for one month but I've heard rumours it will stop flying for them now.
Is this true?

Have you seen the new AI scheme...? You wouldn't be saying this otherwise.....the 767 in the pic above looks so plain, boring and Euro-white.....can't compare with the warm and bright colors of the new AI livery.....not one of the best, but definitely better than the 767 above.....

I have seen it and think its one of the worst makeovers for a major airline of a rising economic power, it lacks a professional look and has many unecessary features that make it worse, colourful and bright it is no doubt, but I get disturbed everytime I see it knowing it could have been better, its a hit and miss thing, they got it and yet they didnt.

Some of the best makeovers for major carriers IMO that went from really bad schemes to good ones:

China Airlines
ANA
Korean Air
Asiana
Cathay Pacific
Vietnam Airlines
Saudi Arabian
British Airways (current livery)
BMI
Virgin Atlantic (not newest one)
Aer Lingus (previous to current)
Northwest (from polished metal to previous red top livery)
Aero Mexico (newer polished metal scheme)
VARIG

In Eurowhite liveries

JAL (previous to current)
Garuda
Air Madagascar
South African
Air France
Air Canada (green with red maple, even though it never photographed well)
Pan Am

Again these are in my opion the best because they had quite pathetic liveries, your views are your own.

I'm glad you said that, because there are a lot of people on this forum who like the new livery....personally, I'm sort of in-between....it looks okay to me, but the interim livery which was painted on just one or two of the 773's in Seattle and never went beyond that, was in my opinion, the best.....the 767 livery in the pic above, looks like an ambulance to me...

Again, as you said, these are personal opinions and each one is entitled to his own  smile
