Certainly! ex VT-JFT makes for 7 737s in Vistara's fleet, and I wouldn't be surprised if VT-JFS joins as well because it is a HGW 737-800. VT-JFS and VT-JFT would make 8 out of the planned 10 737s Vistara were planning on adding to their fleet. I saw this coming ever since I stumbled upon 2 'unknow...Jump to post

I was wondering if it would be a good idea for AI to restart DEL-JFK nonstop on 77L. It would be a 17h55min flight westbound, around PK. I think they can command a good premium if they can pull it off. IMO operating this 3/wk is better than AI183 (the additional SFO flight). This would make DEL a p...Jump to post
