I know KF has been very aggressive to start a BLR-SFO nonstop in Aug. But this article stating that the first flight would be on Aug 27th is news to me. Is this a done deal? I would be surprised if they were able to schedule it into SFO while 9W is still working on its time slot for a proposed March date.
"On August 27, Kingfisher Airlines will launch a non-stop service from Bangalore to San Francisco. It will likely introduce non-stop flights from Bangalore, Mumbai and New Delhi to New York as well as a Chennai-San Francisco service by September or October."

I would hope that they have their act together on launching these flights given their financial commitment (tons of Airbus wide bodies) and their stated goal that BLR-SFO would be their initial (or one of the initial) route.
