That is what the airlines pay to the airport operator - Rs 225.
I'm still surprised that fuel surcharges are still above Rs 2000. Makes no sense at current ATF prices. The congestion fee is understandable in the winters, but the airlines really should be forced to make their fleets and pilots CAT III compliant.

Yay - flight ticket prices have finally fallen. I can now get seats on BLR-DEL (3 weeks away) for Rs. 3000 all inclusive. Pretty good deal considering it was hovering around 5K for the past few months!

I have a feeling that they have hedged the fuel prices as even the Singapore - Delhi flight, the fuel surcharge is enough to make me not want to travel with them.. i am running out of options fast

Quoting Ag92 (Reply 15): I think for the larger airlines such as CX it may only be because of the fog and other safety reasons where e.g. the captain refuses to fly, I don't think it will be a problem with their equipement
More than that, actually the 29-30 night was so bad that visibility fell to under 50m, and you need CATIIIC for that, which no runway in DEL is capable off. The international flights were further delayed in the morning as priority was given to landings and then domestic opns as the terminal was overflowing!

Fares have not decreased uniformly across all sectors and airlines. In Nov, I flew Spicejet CJB-AMD for about Rs. 4900 or so. Now I've been told by their call centre that the lowest fare "till February" on the sector is Rs. 5940/-. Even Paramount is in excess of 7000 on the dates I want to fly. Flights to CJB from BOM have reduced drastically and IT/DN have also withdrawn AMD-CJB services and this may have caused the spike in fares.

I am flying LHR - BOM in mid January on AI and am wondering how many of the 747-400s now have had the interior upgraded? I know there are photos of the first aircraft that was refirbished, but am wondering if the program has continued? I am really looking forward to flying on the aircraft with the new interiors.
Reach for the stars - they are closer than you think!
