Re: Indian Aviation Thread - April 2019

I was thinking about this question for many days. Do flight routes like Delhi/Mumbai-Gorakhpur or BLR-IXD really need an A320 or B737? I flew from BLR to IXD last week and the load was just 30 to 40%. My friends also said that they had seen the same situation on Gorakhpur flights many times. So, are...

Re: Indian Aviation Thread - February 2019

A question, Why doesn't SG fly to LKO? Can lack of enough infrastructure be a cause? There is huge traffic for flights to South and West India in LKO...
Also, is operating aircrafts like A320 and B737 to cities like Gorakhpur and Allahabad profitable considering the demand.?

Re: Indian Aviation Thread - 2018 (2)

I recently noticed that Spicejet doesn't operate from Lucknow. Is there any specific reason for it? Most of the passengers from Lucknow mostly prefer flights over trains for destinations like Delhi and Bengaluru, capacity addition would be more than welcome.

Re: Indian Aviation Thread - 2018 (2)

Jet Airways is starting a new flight from Lucknow to Allahabad under the UDAN Scheme. The distance is just 200 kilometres by road and the flight time is 1 Hour 5 Minutes by ATR 72. What makes the flight time so long? LKO-DEL takes 50 Minutes for a distance of 500 kilometres by a jet aircraft and 80 ...

No, it is not present. The new T3 is likely to change that.

So should I pick my luggage, come out and check-in again.

Bags can be transferred, but you have to physically re-enter the airport.

Re: Indian Airlines - Orders and Delivery thread

Air India needs to look for options to replace ageing 777s. Maybe 787-9 would suffice.

22 x ATR72-600s. In case you missed the fine print, Allied Air Services aka AI(Regional) is not for sale.

Even long haul fleet is getting old.

Re: India Aviation Thread - 2018

I had a question. Can't Air India use B77W on LKO DEL route for AI 991? This flight operates from LKO to DEL on A321 and further to JED on B777. LKO is perfectly capable of handling B777 and traffic is also not a problem as migrant workers from UP and Bihar may find it easier to fly from LKO. Saudi ...

Nice Trip Report. BTW the Gulab Jamuns served to you were also served to me on the flight from DEL to IXJ few days back. The taste was awesome and it also had some coconut flavour in it.
