Might be wrong, I just looked it up on Google Flights for a week in August, so some changes are possible.
This rotation is aligned with the newly launched IDR-DXB-IDR flights.
AI918 starts on July 15
AI917 starts on July 16
Thanks to Abhijeeth for the tip!
Their Reach is the Primary reason I love them along with baggage and legroom..But dont you think its high time CCU is connected with LHR with a Non stop flight ?
I mean EK is already flying to DXB 777..If AI has to keep eating the tax money then shouldnt it be responsible to return the tax favour to the public in the face of CCU-LHR.
Like they already fly to LHR from BLR despite BLR having BA flights and I believe CCU needs the LHR connection more than BLR does..but then who would get it in the heads of the politicians who are at the top.
CCU had LHR flights both on AI and BA..both cancelled due to lack of premium traffic.. LHR slots are precious
For once AI did the right decision..
