The only good news that i have heard is that the Heads of DL and 9W seem to have become real cosy with each other , as mentioned by DL747400 negotiations continuoe,

If 9W join sky expect an India [mostly BOM] -NRT flight from 9W immediately in order to tap into DL hub at NRT for west coast connections

Also India- AMS-ORD is being talked about

That's not a practical connection. 9W will not be able to do the turnaround in a 24 hour time frame (or a 48 hour frame in case 9W extends NRT to USA).

If you look at the DL timings, the 4 major DL flights (SEA, LAX, SFO, PDX) from USA arrive at 1630 hrs (1625, 1635, 1635, 1655) and departs to the US at 1530 hrs - ish (1530, 1530, 1540, 1540). So if we have a sample 9W flight which will try to connect to NRT:

9W 022 BOM - NRT 0230 1400
9W 021 NRT - BOM 1825 0200+1

The aircraft utilization will go for a toss. However a dedicated BOM - NRT flight is definitely on the cards, but not with the intent of any connection beyond NRT.

For connections to west coast I recommend 9W to forge a relationship with KE whose 3 weekly flights to BOM are unknown to many. KE can do BOM - ICN and 9W can do DEL - ICN thus getting good feed to KE's network. Parallely even Air India can forge a similar relationship with OZ and with such a proposal the govt. of India would not have an issue with amending the age old bilateral agreement.

Right, ORD and ATL has been filed by 9W and KL would withdraw one of these routes in favor of 9W.

I'm interested to see how Jet and Saudia would cooperate. There's a lot of scope for codesharing between them.

and with Virgin in Skyteam they will have excellent coverage of Heathrow, if it happens! And all Klm's UK connections with Indian pax will be great for jet Airways.
