There was an article in Economic Times that AI
was examining the possibility of launching BLR
nonstop from May 2008 pending the delivery of more B 77Ls from Boeing.
As far as YVR
is concerned, nothing has mentioned apart from interest shown by the airline. Though if launched, YVR
should be flown from ATQ via DEL
with the B 777-200LR three times a week only.
on WED/FRI/SUN with the B 77L
Btw fyi...from this month onwards, AI
flies B 773ERs instead of B 744s to JFK
