Kolkatta CPDLC has....supposedly....been on trial the last 16-18 months and has encouraged all aircraft to log on. To date I've not been able to nor has anyone else from this Airline. No-one is surprised.

It is used on the Y1 airways that goes over the high ground with no VHF coverage.
So far, only a few airlines use that route as far as I know, due to the high terrain and enroute alternate restrictions.
