Re: Indian Aviation Thread - February 2019

Even after that, the price used to be in the INR 3k+ range, whatever the base-price they may say (one-way), not exactly for the 'aam aadmi' I would say. You'll never find or airlines will never provide you one way tickets for cheap. It's always the return tickets which go cheap to rock bottom. Stil...

Re: Indian Aviation Thread - February 2019

And replaces Mumbai- Jaisalmer with Mumbai- Bhopal, but only up until W'19 schedule as published, after which the former route is scheduled again. The chopping and churning of routes makes SG such an unreliable carrier with no network continuity. They announce a route with fanfare, operate a monopo...

Re: Indian Aviation Thread - February 2019

A pair of 744s are used to fly BOM-HYD-JED-COK and back. The other pair is on VIP duty. Once the retro-fitted B777s take over VIP duties, AI will have no reason to keep the 744s operational. HYD/COK-JED flights may go to the A320NEOs. Only two are active, two are always in storage. When 744s are on...

Can someone decipher what this news article trying to communicate? IndiGo spent Rs 835 crore on staff expenses in the December quarter, up 36% from the year earlier . Its total costs, excluding fuel, in the period rose 39% to Rs 4,628 crore. In the last three fiscal years, salary expenses have rise...

snipped - Again anecdotal evidence but try to travel by road to Pune from BOM after arriving at middle of night. You can easily spot 50-60+ cars from KK travels doing airport runs between Pune and BOM. I'm pretty sure significant chunk of BOM traffic comes from Pune including me and my family who m...

Re: Indian Aviation Thread - February 2019

I completely agree with this, in fact I always wondered why IAF insists on maintaining airbases in middle of cities when in fact they would be better off having them outside the cities. Current PNQ is better positioned to handle civilian traffic as its very close to the city and IAF owns lot of rea...

Re: Indian Aviation Thread - February 2019

snipped - PNQ was discontinued because PrivatAir which operated the aircraft went belly up. PNQ cannot handle widebodies due to runway and apron constraints and LH does not have a suitable partner or aircraft to resume PNQ. As far as I know, the flight was always successful and never an issue from ...
