Re: Jet Airways: Shutdown

Stating facts is not being anti anything. Jet is a failed airline. BOM is not premium enough to sustain a FSC hub operations. If not BOM, then which city is? DEL, as long as AI and/or UK are around. BLR, as long as those clamouring for BLR-SFO are around. TBH I think DEL BOM and BLR can become FSC ...

How will this be : (My view)
Vistara taking 5 B777s and 20-22 B737s and reconstructing most of jet's BOM hub (More than 60%). Good for most of jet's Mumbai based staff and good for BOM as it will retain FSC hub status.

Yes, SFO is the top unserved international route from BLR. For example, in Q2 2018 BLR-SFO Pax Daily Each Way (PDEW) was an avg of 170. More than that of KUL,MCT, CDG. So there it is.
