I have no airline inside on actual load-factors out of BOM, but from what I hear in other threads, loads are not too impressive. Apparently, AI has had loads in the mid-30's on their nonstop US services before they slashed their fares dramatically to match one-stop competitors. However, loads aren't the worst part - yields are very poor. Remember, although many airlines seem to think so, you don't survive on high load-factors, you survive on the money on the bottom-line. And whereas the loads out of BOM might not be totally bad, I definitely believe that yields are.

As mentioned above, I do not have any airline insider facts to support this, it's what I hear and see around. For instance, look around the web and search for a ticket from Europe to BOM - even for nonstops, and with no advance purchase restrictions at all (fly tomorrow), you can find return tickets down 400 euros. Combine that with, say, an 80 % load-factor, and the economics totally don't add up..
