Would have been nice if you had shared some details of the kind of the deals you got from BOM - DEL or BOM - MAA vis-a-vis PNQ to those destinations. That would have provided a clearer picture as well as the arrival and departure times both at BOM as well as in PNQ . From what I know and can recall...Jump to post
PNQ can sustain multiple international flights on its own without being any competition at all to slot constrained BOM until Navi Mumbai comes online. PNQ is a slot constrained as well. International carriers need to get a slot of airport’s choice as opposed to the airlines own choice, which means ...Jump to post

If given the choice to a OW premium FF on a West Coast-BLR route -
would he/she choose
AS - AA to BLR via SEA. OR
AA/BA- BA to BLR via LHR ??
Assuming similar fares and connecting times.

Were these evac flight aircraft reconfigured into all economy? Before asking these questions I hope you realise how absurd it sounds to spend several millions of dollars in reconfiguring aircraft seating arrangement, that too for one or two evac flights. The absurdity is next level especially with ...Jump to post
They are extensively codesharing with AI to multiple Indian destinations, SE Asia and even Australia. A unique take on the kangaroo route. If this is true then AI can capitalize on this demand even more as it always should have done from the start. If LOT can codeshare AI to SYD/MEL effectively, ot...Jump to post
I’m actually shocked that Kathmandu has more demand to Sydney than BOM. That makes no sense to me. Makes perfect sense. There is a huge (like really huge) Newari community in Australia, who are ethnically the indigenous inhabitants of Kathmandu valley. That and the immense popularity amongst Austra...Jump to post
Video of new terminal of Bengaluru airport. I would guesstimate that 80% are foreigners in this video animation. Is this targeted to impress Indians or foreigners?

4 in a month is sudden presence. The other airlines flying in/out of India won't be able to adapt if suddenly a bunch of routes are announced. I wonder what the first routes will be. Lightsaber I believe they are bringing in multiple aircrafts for a possible USA non-stop, alongside another route to...Jump to post
It probably will be a LGW-GOI flight to cater and probably comes in the heels of the recent downfall of Thomas Cook, although that was from MAN. Their winter service to GOI won't operate and as a result has left a large void in seasonal UK traffic to Goa.Jump to post
Why is LAX-JFK not the highest earning route within US?Jump to post
Interesting that UK is tied up with UA. You'd think UA-AI would be the natural pairing.
While this is great news, wouldn’t 4x weekly 787-900 have been a better choice than 3X weekly 787-1000? Just note, they are 787-9 and 787-10 respectively, and not -900 and -1000. Just like the 74H is a 747-8 and not -800 Cheers :thumbsup: How is the progress on DEL’s 4th runway? When is that expect...Jump to post
If that's the case, then Moving AI from BOM to DEL was the best politically motivated decision this (or any other) govt could have ever taken in aviation.

The only thing India has changed is revert to peacetime alert status. The forward bases in the north are still active. Living near two forward bases in the East, I can indirectly say that most of the Sqdrns from here have all been relocated to the North.Jump to post
Couldn't BA start a flight to CCU. It is the only major city in India to which it doesn't have a connection.

So there it is. Sadly this means the nonstop won't happen. There is no way the airline will get 100% of this traffic. Plus it won't even fill a plane. The bigger issue is that BLR is not a connecting hub. It could and should be. But, as many of the people from South India on this forum have said, S...Jump to post
Between 2-16 October 19 SQ will increase CCU to daily, no SilkAir services operating during this period - Most certainly to cater to the 2019 Durga Puja holiday rush. - Funny enough, that one extra widebody flight by SQ will increase passenger WB ops at CCU by 16-20% for that duration.
