This is the first real proof of the famous Air India and Indian (Airlines) merger. Pictured here is one of the A321's ordered by Indian (Airlines) and now bears Air India colours after the merger. I am glad i managed to catch this magnificent bird a day before i head home to Chandigarh. On a personal note, i think AI is going to be great once the merger is over and we have new planes.And thank you Phil for the edit once again.

Good Photograph, been waiting to see the new Air India colour theme. The red belly, red engines and a red tail all quite resemble the kingfisher colour themes in a way, but the air india print on the tail with the white background, the logo in Hindi and the palace style windows are the hallmarks of air india.
Hope they have done a good job with the interiors too. Would like to see what colours and interiors are like for the new aircraft

Impressive catch... Looks like Air India is finally on the path of success.

Even though she looks amazing in this colour scheme, she belongs to Indian Airlines, as part of the 43 Airbus aircraft it ordered during its fleet expansion plans. Nice bird in nice colours!! Way to go Airbus!!
