Indigo “learns” from Jet’s mistake and will not order wide bodied aircraft. Good call in my opinions .
separately, Lufthansa has decided to close Eurowings (low cost) long haul operations. Saying it doesn’t work. Joon too is shutting all operations. The only remaining ones are Norwegian which is struggling, LEVEL, and Air Asia X
From the article:
Air India was supposed to do in being the national airline of India and carrying the international traffic, it has not worked,” Ronojoy Dutta said. IndiGo hence looks to step into that and expand its market share internationally
One can wonder how much of that void they can fill into by just using narrowbodied aircraft. Yes, XLR will help make it to Europe with grumpy pax onboard, beyond that I doubt where they can get to. Unless they now plan one-stop to USA via Europe with their Neo XLR's. Be one crazy journey.
This are some very selective quotes. If you watched the interview you would know the point he was making was more nuanced than that. He even said widebody operations are inevitable at IndiGo. They will not rush into launching WB operations in the near future.
The quickest way to bankruptcy is rushing widebody opperations. There is a wudebody price war that I believe will have lower pricing before wudebody pricing recovers. There is time. 6E will be a key customer in India and should negotiate for a while.
