Any Chance Of AA To BOM?

The AA flight from ORD to DEL has been in operation for more than 2 years now. It seems to be doing pretty well due to the large traffic to India from Chicago and also due to the fact that it is the only nonstop to India from the Midwest.

Considering the large Indian population in Chicago and passengers from the Midwest, would AA take a shot at ORD-BOM nonstop? The NYC market is saturated but it could work out very well from the Midwest.

Is it possible for a 777 to do the route without restrictions?

No, it can be done only with the B777LR.

Its actually not really a great preformer by the bottom line. The flight is super expensive to operate and that digs into the profit.

Nonstop from the US in today's economy with AA's current fleet? No. In a few years with a 787? Perhaps. The 787 is perfectly suited for a long haul flight such as ORD-BOM. I can see AA in this market eventually.

A nonstop from ORD to BOM on AA wont happen anytime soon. The Pilot contracts is an issue in addition to aircraft, economy, recession etc.
That being said, I would like AA to start ORD-LHR-BOM with feed from DFW/MIA/LAX/RDU/JFK/BOS in addition to a codeshare with the OneWorld partners. Business travellers would immensely benefit if AA can take them to the two major cities in India through a ORD-DEL-BOM (9W)-LHR-ORD routing.  Wink
