What Vistara is up against in its first three foreign routes

What Vistara is up against in its first three foreign routes
    Call it by choice or the lack of it, the airline has launched its two flights to Singapore and would be followed by Mumbai-Dubai and Delhi-Bangkok flights.
    The current schedule of Vistara is not catering to connections at India end effectively.

As UK115 took to the skies on August 6, it marked the maiden foray of Vistara – the Tata-SIA joint venture — into the international markets. The flight connected its hub New Delhi with Singapore – the hub of its equity partner Singapore Airlines.

That the airline will launch flights to Singapore as its maiden destination to get traffic and feed traffic to its equity partner was predictable. However, things were not as simple as they seemed. Jet Airways kept up the pressure and added frequencies from across the country to create a mini hub at Singapore, leaving any other airline with limited seats to launch flights and wait for the amendment to Air Services Agreement.

The bigger problem is most of the Indian competition has 30+/- more seats on their aircraft. UK needs to get a sizeable fare premium just to match the same revenue as the all Y competition, on a much smaller network.
I don't take responsibility at all
