A bold move. However, as things are in October QR cannot connecting passengers into and out of India. If this continues until December, I wonder what back up plans do they have. A.

Sorry that was my bad on HYD. Don't know why I thought they were 4x for whatever reason. Apologies. Most likely looks like a typo then (28 in place of 24)? It IS a typo, BLR was never 28 weekly. As I had tweeted, the swap of capacity from TRV to BLR happened from IATA W19 wherein TRV was reduced fr...Jump to post

Instead of blaming the aircraft people need to understand how EK grew. Essentially EK got to where it is today by taking market share from other airlines with lower prices, and accepting slightly lower yields (margin) with more volume. Look at Europe/Australia traffic EK took away around 20% of tra...Jump to post
I agree with @unrave; no one will shed too many tears if at all Jet is dead completely.

Thanks for a very informative review Ojas. Vistara has been on my radar for quite some time and its good to read a detailed report on them.

Well documented. Enjoyed reading your TR. :) Thanks Regarding the food tray if I fly business there is usually a lot of empty space, also excusive dinners have small portions on a big plate.

I think MCO is back to normal daily flight and FLL to 4 times a week, one JFK is now going to be a daily B77W to EWR, so nothing much change there.

I'm guessing that they didn't think they could fill a second A380, so they went with a 777, which needed a stop enroute (or could the 777 300 make the leg DXB AKL nonstop?) I'm wonder if they mostly expect to fill it with DPS - DXB - XXX traffic, with the AKL traffic boosting it, or if most of the ...Jump to post

Thats rather uncharitable of you to say….I am pretty sure NAG it isn’t the first choice for any carrier, but loads have actually been pretty decent. AFAIK, above 70% although prone to huge seasonal variations. Granted there isn’t much business traffic, but dont forget there’s a huge number of hard-...Jump to post

What you need to think about is how the weight of the aircraft is spread on the pavement. The aircraft you listed are operated at lower weights and/or have more tyres to spread the weight.
