AF from CDG = 343
BA from LHR = 744
AI from LHR = 744
VS from LHR = 343
KL from AMS = M11
LH from FRA = 744
AI from FRA = 744 (mixed configuration)
LH from MUC = 343
AZ from MXP = 767
OS from VIE = 332 and 342
SU from SVO = IL6, IL9 and T20

I can´t remember anyone more.

If you fly in October, you will get a chance to be on one of their mighty 777s

AI from BHX = 772 (via ATQ) to DEL.

The 777 is surely the best airliner travelling to India from the UK. AI currently have two of them and one is doing the DEL-ATQ-BHX-YYZ-BHX-ATQ-DEL route.

Thank you very much for all the information... I'd like to fly B777 rather than MD11 but... let's see!

They have three. VT-AIJ, VT-AIK, VT-AIL.. the latter entered the fleet either end of may or beg of June (don't remember). I saw her recently in LHR, ready for taxiing on the LHR-CCU-DAC route (6th freedom with change of flight numbers in CCU). She looks like a toy, with thick color on her (the classic livery does not suit the 777)

The Triple 7s that AI has also have PTVs, a first for AI.

Wow! I didn't know that. Some of my relatives went on AI 187 BHX-YYZ just today and I thought they were going to have a farther boring flight. I'll take it back now.

Yes and no. Yes: they have PTVs in Eco. No: VT-AIE and VT-AIF (ex SQ 744s) entered AI's fleet earlier and have PTVs - afaik they are mostly used for the BOM-CDG-EWR leg

From Namaskar, June Ed:

They are not AVOD, have an overwhelming 6 channels: FRA to LAX, 4 shows, other sectors 3 or 2, respectively. I am too lazy to write it off the guide now, either send me an email and I will photograph it, or I can post a pic here.. give me a day or two though, because I forgot my digi at my friends place



(see my trip report on AI recently - you will see from the pc that the IFE Guide is a mess)
