It's rumoured this route will soon switch to a 77W when 9W move the 330 to serve "a southern city" - either BLR or MAA.

If their investors conference is to be believed it will be BLR.

I am really curios to see how things will unfold at BRU now that both 9W and EY are establishing a larger presence there.

This particular announcement is good news for me, now my only question becomes whether to choose YYZ-AUH-KTM on EY or YYZ-BRU-DEL-KTM on 9W this winter.

With the use of Brussels as an intermediate point, will pax be able to interchange on flights?

ie. is 9W going to establish BRU as the base, so that DEL-BRU-YYZ flights connect with BOM-BRU-JFK, BLR-BRU-ORD etc or any other flights they launch in the future?

Makes a lot more sense to connect over BRU then force domestic connections within India IMO.

In short, yes. Brussels will be used as a scissor hub

Now that 9W is establishing BRU as a hub, will they still want to fly their own services to UK points outside London. BRU would be a good point to transfer onto codeshare flights operated by SN Brussels to MAN/BHX etc. Will SN codeshare on the 9W flights?

Well speculation is that EY will tack on a leg to some/all of the BRU flights to enter another market quickly using the already stretched resources available to them. This is now possible as YYZ-BRU is now direct.

Yes they will codeshare on a number of routes! Think they will still want to at some point... There are currently huge discussions about Brussels airlines premium service for european flights! Apparently it is not well liked since it is more economy + than Business class! One wonders whether a tired business class passsengers will want to 1) connect to another flight 2) Enjoy fairly limited service on the Brussels Airlines leg of their trip....

Great news for BRU since we lost that YYZ connection with EY. A switch from the A330 to a 777 in mid-term would not surprise me at all.

Everyone was expecting the official news. BRU will indeed be used as a scissor hub.
I have heard that Jet's lounge facilities are really impressive here !! Separate F and C class lounges...  smile 

I'm just a bit surprised to see that 9W will ground its A332 for 8 hours in YYZ.

Now "busy" BRU waits for the BLR-BRU-ORD link !  cheerful

Well it is surprising.

i know its probably not going to happen or even possible for 9W to consider continuing this flight to YVR??!! Isn't it something like 8th freedom right??? just a suggestion rather than park the plane at YYZ for almost half a day.
come fly with me

The 8 hour stop is actually needed for the aircraft to rest, if you look at the schedule in DEL, it'll have to turn around in 3 hours for the next flight.

I think the 3rd country cannot control the 5th freedom bilateral with the intermediate country. Can you provide an example of a bilateral that limits a carrier's 5th freedom rights from an intermediate stop?

In a A->B->C route,
the A->C bilateral usually limits the traffic rights to C from A and doesn't govern if the intermediate stop is B or B1 or B2 and what treaties are in place between A & B.

My point was that the person posting the message I responded to seemed to imply that it was only the India-Belgium bilateral that would determine whether Jet would have 5th freedom rights to operate beyond BRU to YYZ. My point was that the Canada-India bilateral would also have to permit 5ths, and it would specifiy the intermediate points that can be served between Canada and India.

For example, hypothetically, if the Canada-India bilateral permitted service via any intermediate point in Europe, but the India-Belgium bilateral didn't permit beyond rights, how could they carry traffic BRU-YYZ?

Planes need a good lunch and a warm bed tto, just like us.... 

I guess what he means is that the plane would be subjected to certain maintenance and other work during this halt at YYZ, which would justify the long halt as it does not get that much time on ground at the DEL end.....

And come to think of it, machines do need some 'rest' .... meaning some non-operational time.....so YYZ is a perfect place to 'chill' - literally....

Quoting Jlk (Reply 23):

So in this case if 9W desires and if Belgium obliges there is no problem. It really is independent of the India-Canada treaty.

Quoting VTMAA (Reply 24):

Two treaties govern this. Picking up passengers @ B is governed by the A->B treaty and the number of flights that land @ C and the capacity is governed by A->C.

Except the India-Canada bilateral specifies what points can be served between India and Canada. Belgium is not restricted so there is no problem for 9W's routing, but I think the bilateral was recently amended and was more restrictive previously.

Link to the current Canada-India bilateral below. Note in Paragraph 4 that Indian carriers are permitted to serve two points in Europe including the UK, but the other country cannot be Italy, Greece, Spain or Portugal. And if they made the one permissible stop in Asia on the Atlantic route, it can't be in Israel. And if they stopped in France, they would only have 5th freedom passenger rights France-Canada, not for cargo. Similar restrictions for Canadian carriers. Here is the current Canada-India bilateral.
http://www.cta-otc.gc.ca/air-aerien/agreements/html/india_e.html

So again, hypothetically, if 9W had beyond rights from Italy as part of the India-Italy bilateral, they still wouldn't be able to operate India-Italy-Canada because Italy is not a permitted en route point under the India-Canada bilateral.

Jet might shelve plan for Blore-Toronto flight

Quote:
Private carrier Jet Airways wants to fly to Toronto from Bangalore but lack of positive response from the HAL airport may just force the airline to look at Chennai as the alternative.

“We have applied for a slot to fly from Bangalore to Toronto from November but there has been no response (from HAL airport and Airports Authority of India),” the carrier’s executive director Saroj K Datta told Deccan Herald.

Jet sources later pointed out that the airline may well have to consider Chennai as the next option.

‘Not aware’
Sources in Bangalore airport, however, said they were not aware of the Jet application.

“I have heard this proposal but there has been no proposal before us,” a senior official said.

The sources, however, added that it has become difficult to start any new international service from Bangalore as the international check-in area was almost choking. “We are in a tight spot.”

Just a cheeky comment. It's a waste of resources to have a multi million aircraft on the ground doing nothing. The few hours at turnaround are more than enough for the aircraft to "rest" until they go in for the C and D checks.

Somehow, I too recall the 9W ad that appeared in the Toronto Star couple of days back speaking about First, Premiere and Economy..maybe I'm wrong........as such, pax flying to BOM will switch over to the 773 at BRU and could fly the BRU-BOM sector on First....is that possible...?

Technically, they are offering first class to BOM (kind of, sort of), on the cross connection at BRU. As such, they will probably have a calculated fare which offers J/C YYZ/BRU & F/C BRU/BOM.

I think it possibly may be just a MAA-BRU flight, providing feed to the EWR flight and the YYZ flight....so there will probably be a single flight into EWR, which 9W will seek to fill up by providing feeder flights into BRU from Indian cities like MAA, BLR and maybe AMD.....I could be wrong, though

Jet set to fly Madrid, Birmingham, Geneva

Quote:
Jet Airways is all set to spread its wings to three new foreign destinations—Birmingham, Madrid and Geneva. The airlines has received the government’s permission to fly on these sectors even as Kingfisher and SpiceJet await the empowered group of ministers (EGoM) decision on whether or not to lower the requirement for flying on international routes to three years of domestic experience.

“We have agreed to grant Jet Airways the traffic rights to operate on India-United Kingdom, India-Spain and India-Switzerland route via Brussels under code-sharing agreement with Brussels Airlines,” a senior official in the ministry of civil aviation told ET.

...
When contacted Jet Airways executive director Saroj K Datta said, “We have been designated the traffic rights on these routes.” He, however, declined to give further details. Meanwhile, Air India is set to add two more flights on the Amritsar-Birmingham route.

“With these two flight we would have every day one flight on this route,” an Air-India spokesperson said. The public sector carrier has, however, no immediate plan to fly to Madrid or Geneva.

So 9W will now fly to GVA or will it be SN codeshare? If 9W is flying to GVA, then maybe they could continue on to IAD from there if they will be allowed (5th Fredom rights etc. ), i think Behramjee had predicted that this might be a good option, if i can recall from a different discussion.  Smile

Its funny how 9W wants to get both EWR and JFK ( i don't think its necessary) instead start ORD or IAH tap the southern and midswetern Indians going home during the winter months  Smile Its marriage season in India then  Wink
come fly with me

The Jet Airways code share partner in brussels is Brussels Airlines. Did they reach a deal yet, because no flights are offered yet on the Brussels Airlines website (on SN flight numbers).

I heard there were problems with the codeshare deal, because recently SN decided to no longer offer business class on European flights (instead a low-cost and a premium economy is offered, b.light and b.flex). This could be a problem for all the expensive C and F fare transferring to a economy seat in Europe.

Any news on this codeshare agreement?

We have agreed to grant Jet Airways the traffic rights to operate on India-United Kingdom, India-Spain and India-Switzerland route via Brussels under code-sharing agreement with Brussels Airlines,”

Yes the ads have been in the Toronto Star and do definitely show all three classes. I was told they will be using Terminal 1. Those gates already seem very busy all day long. I hope it doesn't mean the dreaded Infield Terminal will be once again put into use. For those that aren't familiar with it, it is in the middle of the field a fair bit from the terminal. You check in at the Terminal and ride shuttle buses across the field to the terminal. It is a great place for airplane spotters because the infield cargo area is right there so there is good access to the public. However as a traveler it adds 15 to 25 or so minutes to your trip.
