The question is quite flawed: How do you even compare the quality of life in one of the richest countries in the world to life in one of the poorest large countries?

If that is the case, how will Spice ever climb up the chain of ticket pricing. Being stuck in the Ryan air lowest fare group is a tough place to be. Too bad they couldn't make it work.

GTF has been nothing but a nightmare for IndiGo. I don't see them choosing GTF over LEAP for the 300 aircraft order. It is a pity that such a promising technology hasn't lived upto real world demands.Jump to post

Thank you unrave. Helpful as always. Was IndiGo's initial order for factory fresh A320ceo 130 frames? This was later supplemented by second hand lease aircraft.

IndiGo doesn't need back finance to fund these orders thoughJump to post
A good time to revisit this 14 year old thread from Paris Air Show of 2005 when IndiGo placed its first order of 100 aircraft. You've got to marvel at Anet's collective wisdom.
Technically the largest Airbus order from a single carrier.Jump to post

With this, IndiGo has ordered a total of 730 neo aircaft. So far it has taken delivery of 97 aircraft.Jump to post
IndiGo still has 344 A320neo's on order (just shy of a 100 delivered). So can we soon expect an orderbook for 600+ Neos from IndiGo? Yes. For an airline growing 25% a year with 225 A320s in its fleet an order backlog of 600 isn't too unreasonable, especially when you consider the 129 ceos that need...Jump to post
Update: Reuters reports IndiGo is close to finalising an order for as many as 300 neo aircraft https://www.reuters.com/article/indigo-airbus-idUSL8N27E21N My guess is we'll see an order at the Dubai air show.
