BOM was (and is) bursting at the seams. When AI took on widebodies by the dozen, DEL and T3 offered a natural hub for connecting India to Europe / NA / Australia, while offering connections both domestically and internationally. Until this year, 9W had some semblance of a 'hub' at BOM but that is hi...Jump to post
A comedy for sure, but don't set too much stall by SkyTrax - those ratings are meaningless.Jump to post

The fissures that have emerged between the two promoters of IndiGo — Rahul Bhatia and Rakesh Gangwal — could see the carrier landing up at the National Company Law Tribunal if the board is not able to resolve the dispute even as the CEO of the budget carrier tried to lift the confidence of investor...Jump to post
AI receiving first allocation of Jet's unused rights. 5,700 seats/week to Dubai 5,000 to DOH 4,600 to London (slots?) This leaves another 6,300 to be allocated to Dubai. In effect, AI can now partially block EK's ambitions. This is not what I expected or predicted. I will have to consider this more...Jump to post
As a freighter, for a very long time the 767 was the best medium-sized aircraft on the market. It was small enough to be put on relatively thin routes where a larger aircraft would be too big. The A330 freighter was developed much later than the 767 and it was bigger, meaning more empty floor space...Jump to post

If trying to check in as close as possible to 24 hours in advance, it would be nice to know the official Southwest time. The time to get the error message and clear it and try again could let a bunch of people check in ahead of you. It's a flight. Not a Harry Potter book release in 2007. Bet you'll...Jump to post
Do they really have to retain the uninspiring Continental globe? There's not much you can do with such a block, and it makes the overall look and feel very clunky. The blue suits Pepsi.

MAD is back as well. "Air India is set to resume its thrice-a-week service on the Delhi-Madrid-Delhi sector from April 18, after a brief interlude to cater to the consistent heavy demand from passengers both in Spain and India," the airline said in a statement. https://www.ndtv.com/india-n...Jump to post
It is very sad that MAA (an airport that simply does not bother about #PaxEx, and appallingly lacking in facilities) gets LH service (and even 9W CDG service, if not AF/KL), while HYD, a far better airport in every respect, is nowhere close. Surely you don't believe that the quality of an airport i...Jump to post
When did Jet Airways fly to SFO? Which was the route it operated? BOM-PVG-SFO between June 2008 and Jan 2009. FWIW, Etihad operated it's AUH-SFO service in 2014 with B77W leased from Jet.

Typical A.net - so American centric. 9W have been around for a long time and are an important cog in the Indian aviation story. All of that is much more worth remembering today than DL or AA ever launching an India route, and the airline they would have a handshake with if they do. I'm not saying th...Jump to post
p=0.05 UK. Vistara. Hybrid. W, Y. Codeshares with BA, SG, MI (Silk Air), and JL. Privately held (Tata Sons and SIA). A320 fleet with a few A321s and B739s ordered.

Looks like it will be battered in 5 years.
Fascinating is the word.
Thanks for sharing one from the Stans!
A good report on a tried and tested airline into India!
Thanks for sharing.
Bad reviews on Jet service (largely due to the cancellations) are starting to hit web pages with a vengence (since this is on the SKYTRAX site, i can see a downgrade coming fairly soon but will it come after the airline is already grounded?): https://www.airlinequality.com/airline-reviews/jet-airwa...Jump to post

Are you aware of the acute shortage of seats out of BOM and the extremely high fares currently on all routes out of the city?

For those who are following Jet, they have really never recovered from the monumental losses post the Sahara; 2008-09 recession and the massive international expansion in terms of new destinations from 2007 till 2009.
