Its a very speculative article with all info coming from unidentified "sources". I don't like to believe a single word contained in such articles.

It has to get from the open market, or GoI can arm-twist EY to give old 9W slots at a cheaper rate.

9W's demise presents a new challenge to the already simmering DEL/BOM (vs) Tier-2 conundrum.

If Indian airlines keep going back connecting BOM/DEL to Europe, Tier-2 cities will never get a chance. ME3 will remain dominant international carriers.

I think dtw2hyd's point was that he wants international connectivity from more tier 2 cities that fly somewhere other than the ME (and I am adding SE Asia). The main opportunity these cities had was through strong Indian airlines. With Jet's demise, Indigo and Spice will each try and fill the gap from BOM and DEL left by Jet's exit (putting off other cities for some time). This means all Tier 2 cities get is ME3. You seem to be happy with that, he is not. To each their own I guess.

I didn't see Jet and AI rushing to add direct connectivity from small cities? They only wanted us to funnel through BOM/DEL. IndiGo and SpiceJet have 100s of planes to take so even if their immediate concern is about grabbing slots at BOM/DEL they'll shift their focus to smaller cities sooner than later

Well Jet did, just to the ME. They also did launch BLR-AMS and MAA-CDG. Both of those flights were appreciated by Skyteam fliers. Plus the added frequency out of BOM did give tier 2 cities more timing options. My guess would be that dtw2hyd was hoping for a AMS-HYD flight either by KL or 9W. DTW is a sky team fortress, so that flight would have been a good add for sky team country. But all, that will not happen for awhile now. I am willing to bet there will be no longhair launch by either Spice or Indigo from a cities other than BOM, DEL or BLR for at least 5 years. The reason will be that they will launch their BOM flights and will struggle. EU-India fares are super cheap as is. Because they won't be making big profits, they can't subsidize the launch of even HYD-LGW. Willing to bet on this. But let's see. I hope I am wrong.

SpiceJet to rapidly add ATRs:

https://www.bing.com/amp/www.newindiane ... 964999.amp

Why are they the only airline taking advantage of the spike in fares to expand rapidly? I doubt the Jet ATR pilots didn't shop around. Kudos to seizing the opportunity.

I understand Indigo's A320 pilot shortage. They could have grabbed ATRs and pilots too.

SpiceJet's growth by summer end is amazing.

Has anybody by any chance seen the new Istanbul Airport and compared it with Qatar Airport. I just been to Qatar and then South Africa, Cape Town Airport. I could not even begin to compare between Qatar and any Indian Airport to date, would be interesting if somebody has been to these two Airports and can share their views.

@binayak, thank you for sharing the codes, makes lot of sense :)

Seems like airlines are cutting down on flights between other cities to fill up vacated slots of 9W at BOM/DEL. That doesn't seem to go well with the regulators.
https://www.google.com/amp/s/m.economictimes.com/industry/transportation/airlines-/-aviation/regulator-against-diversion-of-flights-to-fill-jet-airways-trunk-slots/amp_articleshow/68914843.cms

6E's new flights using Jet slots at BOM/DEL below.
Note: They are cunningly using these slots for adding new flights on routes not even operated by Jet, so doesn't help in utilising these slots well enough for the shortage in Jet vacated routes completely. These are to stations like Bhubaneswar/Ranchi, and routes like DEL-BDQ where 9W has never or hasn't operated since ages.etc.
And they seem to be dumping a lot of capacity on routes like BOM-BHO/IDR to bully I5 & SG, instead of launching flights to other stations which face capacity shortage.

9W used to fly an evening DEL-BDQ-DEL which was then moved to a JetLite route - I think around 2011-12. At some point there used to be a morning flight as well. Always wondered how come 9W+6E added flights on routes to BDQ and AI + IT (legacy Air Deccan route) removed since 2006.

I think we should stop including Etihad in the group. Only EK and QR have a genuine worldwide network. This is no longer true for EY. If anything, TK (Turkish) should be included in the group, since it is a truly global airline, but I see TK as a European airline and not a Middle Eastern airline. (You are free to criticise me, but my stand on TK being European remains firm.) In any case, I always say ‘ME2’ and never ‘ME3’.

To return to the topic, @dtw2hyd is unfortunately correct. With the solitary exception of AF’s CDG-BLR, which is an existing route, no DL/AF/KL airline will fly anywhere in India other than DEL/BOM. (BLR is still not up to the level of the other two.) And now they are left stranded without a partner for onward domestic connections. Other airline groups—or, for that matter, 6E, SG and UK—are not willing to add too many European routes from BLR, MAA or HYD. For cities (like AMD) smaller than these (as well as CCU), going via DXB/DOH is the only option in the foreseeable future.

How many to each, and what routes if any have been announced? Interesting that Vistara didn't get any, since they had filed for some Pune flights in the summer schedule (though they probably don't have spare aircraft anyway).

EY is still substantial but their past follies and the new IST pose a serious existential threat to EY as partof ME3. I see them reduced to a boutique carrier in 5-10 years time.

Are BOM slots being handed out purely based on a/c availability?
If so, I think only the companies with large fleets (except AI of course) will get the biggest share of the pie.

The slots being temporary, is CSIA following the WSGs for slot redistribution?

Chennai Airport has done the unthinkable: it has brought in a host of new retailers at the domestic terminal. Only in DEL/BOM/BLR do you expect to see such top-level brands. Kudos to AAI!

More shops are coming in the international terminal. The ancient departures section has had a few shops under construction for some time.

Wowwwwiieee so we are talking about AAI doing everything that private entities do. That's pretty awesome considering how private groups like Adani are preparing so Rob the shops off in terms of rent. Ultimately travellers will have to pay more resulting out of high rents.

This I believe is the way to go and not privatization of Airports.

I have never been to MAA. But I have been to many other AAI airports and agreed toilets there are typical Indian sarkari standards. It has more to do with how the terminal was constructed than AAI itself

Have the private players ever redesigned the toilets by themselves? Airports like DEL BLR BOM have elegant toilets because they were designed like that and current operators are maintaining them properly.

More shops are coming in the international terminal. The ancient departures section has had a few shops under construction for some time.


Wowwwwiieee so we are talking about AAI doing everything that private entities do. That's pretty awesome considering how private groups like Adani are preparing so Rob the shops off in terms of rent. Ultimately travellers will have to pay more resulting out of high rents.

This I believe is the way to go and not privatization of Airports.



Nope, I would like to see an increase in privatisation of as many airports as possible, reduce AAI filth as much as possible. I would much rather pay a fee for a private airport than travel in a sarkari airport.

AI is offering special discounted fares for stranded 9W passengers. Goodness knows how it will fly routes like CDG-MAA that it does not serve. Will that take a toll on its long-haul fleet?

Absolutely. During my study break SIN-MAA-SIN shuttles, the departure from SIN is always such a breeze, thanks not only due to the shops but also due to the overall efficiency and organisation of the airport, while the joy of coming home is badly dampened by MAA’s antediluvian arrivals hall.

I have been to BOM and BLR only once (the flights were one-way*) and DEL twice, so I have barely experienced an Indian airport that is actually world-class. I am sure they are quite close to Changi levels.

*The onward journey was by train.

All the routes mentioned are routes it already serves. MAA-CDG is operated as MAA-DEL-CDG and back under the flight number AI142/143 with a plane change at DEL.

Do not worry, the rate of privatisation of Indian airports is increasing in recent times apart from new constructions which are also private, you should follow and post in this thread for more information on the topic : viewtopic.php?t=1411949

Of course I know that AMD, JAI, GAU, etc. are getting privatised by Adani. But rest assured MAA and CCU never will. Not in my lifetime.

Q4FY19 outlook for the two operational (& listed) airlines in the country:

Interglobe is expected to have a net profit of about 1K crores for the just concluded quarter - that's higher than my estimates. But we'll find out soon.
