I presume most of the passengers will agree with me.
I am not most. I think it is great AI
added ATQ to the oversea network, realizing the number of ethnical Punjus in BHX
.. they will do a great job on that flight, and I applaud their decision
but the point is that most passenger will be boarding/disembarking at DEL and there is no point in wasting their time with one additional stop.
How do you know? Have you ever travelled a flight bound from Canada to India, seeing the number of People from Punjab?? Then, a family of 4++ would rather save a couple pf dollars and lakhs of Rupees and encounter a stop in ATQ than paying for a more expensive flights - it is a group of pax where price beats time as deciding factor.. I remember arriving at DEL from Europe as a kid, then the Maruti Minibuses, with the Nanis, Matajis, Chahajis, Cousins, Bhaias, and Didis, picking up the oversea pax for a 8 hrs + journey to Punjab, all the euphoria etc..
Being a 'Punjabi Delhi guy', I think the decision is great and far-sighted.. entering ethnic markets will help Air-India against their competition.. and why do you think LH
want to fly to every field, which calls itself an airport in Europe??
No offense, my friend, but I think you are very wrong in your analysis
If I am not wrong then even Ahmedabad London flight goes to BOM first and then to LHR.
You are wrong. teh 2/7 is routed BOM-AMD-LHR
, and it is good they do that, since they are out oif competition and serve a strong ethnic market - that is twhat their strategy is supposed to be
