Why is that? Did they formally close BOM as a hub to consolidate around DEL? Does the market just not support it? Government influence?
I'm guessing it's some combo of the above, but with AI, ya never know... so guess it'd better to ask.

I don't know why AI still operates BOM-LHR nonstop to be honest though. Poor timing, poor connections on both ends, and competing with 9W/BA. I imagine they fill their planes with low-yielding passengers and operate BOM-LHR at a loss.
ORD I think AI should try due to underserved market, BOM-based population in ORD, higher-yielding than EWR, and massive *A hub.
