Vistara advertising is also quite racist in advertising- all their featured cabin crew and pilots are of ‘wheaten complexion’. Do they not hire southern indians? SQ on the other hand is happy to use dark skinned indians in their adverts. Huh ??? I hope you were being sarcastic . OK - racist is mayb...Jump to post
More pipe dreams (?) Yogi Adithyanath, CM of UP, is seeking 8 runways at Jewar/NOIDA airport . Hey, with a friendly Moody government, you never know. Actually, I support his kind of thinking. Think big. If he actually pulls this off (8 runway airport) he will be #2 behind Moody. https://timesofindi...Jump to post
I hope there is an Indigo order/conversion for the XLR. The number of new routes the A321XLR can get you is just amazing. A321XLR Range map from Indian airports considering a 4700nm range.

Indigo order is here. IndiGo shouldn't be too far away.Jump to post
Don't hold me to this but most political commentators (on the right) seem to think AI will continue under the Modi Government. The general consensus seems to be that "Modinomics" is mostly about making PSUs more efficient v outright disinvestment. AI is the first PSU slated to be divested...Jump to post
Unrave could you give more info here. Seems like a big accusation. Yeah, this is the first I'm hearing that accusation too - would like to have some source. I always thought it was clear that they wanted to get some of the LCC pie of India because of the insane growth and later be a decent feeder f...Jump to post
The 0/20 rule effectively blocks Air Asia India from launching a long haul international carrier so IndiGo need not be too concerned about that threat https://economictimes.indiatimes.com/industry/transportation/airlines-/-aviation/airasia-india-to-double-its-fleet-plans-to-start-international-serv...Jump to post
After falling 4.5% in April domestic traffic growth has returned to positive territory in May with a growth of 2.96%.

Can anyone tell me if the A321 XLR will have the AI's A320 Classic like "BOGEY LANDING GEARS" ? or common single gears as the present 321s ? Bogey landing gears on A320 are a legacy of the late 80s. The differences from the existing A321 are: an integrated rear centre fuel tank plus the a...Jump to post
IndiGo has faced a lot of issues with the GTF engines. The fleet was grounded briefly last year and even now IndiGo can't deploy their neos for ETOPS flights. The switch to LEAP was bound to happen.Jump to post
IndiGo has chosen CFM LEAP 1A to power the remaining 280 aircraft of the neo family. The order was confirmed at the PAS today. The first 150 aircraft are powered by the PW GTF engines.Jump to post
Anyways it is for the banks to decide what to do with their NPA account, not the GoI That's theory, not in practice. Did you not read that the banks had to go to the Govt to discuss the potential haircut on loans to Jet? Banks don't work in isolation. Big decisions are always made by the Government...Jump to post

The most important thing that saved SpiceJet (besides the correct political affiliation of the new owner) was the Marans getting out before it was too late. Jet could and would have been saved had this been done late last year. NG prevented this, now its honestly gone too far to be saved. Also the ...Jump to post
Does anyone else think that AI is making a huge mistake by Flying to Nairobo and Bali,which could have been profitible had they chosen to fly to Johannesburg and Auckland Instead ?

But hey small town India gets a foreign flight and cheap fares. This has never been about cheap fares for NRIs - many of us are alliance captive and pay premiums to fly our alliance, be it coach or business class. But that story doesn't work for the remarks here.

India's aviation future belongs to Modi Air(Luft) on its third life, presently known as SpiceJet for next five years.

And you can't beat AI's sale J fares (plus their over 60 fares in J when they have them). You say that's a good thing! We resident Indian taxpayers end up heavily subsidising the annual pilgrimage of NRIs to the motherland. I don’t why few people like you are so cynical on this forum. What he means...Jump to post
