India seems to be doing well for AF-KL. Next year, KLM will upgrade AMS HYD from the current MD11 to a B772ER. Also, AF-KL are looking at one more destination in India. On the other hand, CDG MAA does not seem to be performing as well as expected.

Quoting CDG (Reply 2): DEL and BLR could probably get upgraded too.
I thought DEL sees the B744 in the winter season, isn't that more or less the same capacity as the 77W, the only difference is that the AF 747's are old and the cabins aren't that great. I was in F-GISA and it was quite awful, but after talking to the crew, understood that it was going to be converted to a freighter.
77W, however, has ptv in Y class so i guess you could call it an upgrade!!
I am assuming BLR sees the A332, so is the route doing so well that it requires a 77W???
CCU isn't such a high yielding market, correct me if i am wrong!!
Also BA and LH don't have daily flights from CCU, but then again i am not sure. Well maybe they can move the not so good MAA flight to CCU 3x weekly and see how it performs before they put a dedicated service there.
Like BCA2005, I too, think ATQ would do quite well for them, AMD won't be too shabby either, but are these airports ready to handle heavies??? ATQ probably can, how many heavies does AMD see?
