This is a very good article that explore the potential viability of New Delhi's upcoming second airport at Jewar. It also explains how GMR lost out on its right of first refusal (ROFR). GMR bid Rs 350 and had to be within 10% of the winning bid to exercise the ROFR. Zurich bid Rs 400 per passenger which means that if GMR had bid just Rs 10 more per passenger, Jewar airport would have also been in their kitty. Zurich thus bid just the perfect amount so as to win the bid without overpaying too much.

On time performance (OTP) of Air India has remained below 60 per cent at four metro airports of Bengaluru, Delhi, Hyderabad and Mumbai (see chart). Compared to this, private airlines have logged over 70 per cent with Air Asia India, GoAir and IndiGo clocking nearly 80 per cent OTP.

The flight took off after the cat3 pilot was tested for alcohol level. Wasn't a mid air changeover.

I hope you are not a reporter in the garbage news channels in India. Please edit the post.

The Passenger was a fully trained CAT-IIIB certified Captain of the same airline.

Thanks. So, now that Vistara has ruled out LHR, where are they going to deploy their 4 787s that are in almost ready to be delivered but as are waiting for Vistara to pick it up? Will Vistara postpone delivery? But surely, significant funds must already been transmitted to Boeinh who takes more and more of the price as an aircraft goes through its production phase. Whose losing out on the locked capital invested? Vistara, the lessors?

Is it that new airlines and destinations are given more preference ?

BA is not going to send connections on from North America onto UX when BA has planes to fill going to India. Their relationship is one of convenience, if they get competitive (flying same route) you’d think that might change.

Either way it is a moot point. UX has to make it work from LGW.

Fog affects BLR flights yet again with indigo alone cancelling 44 flights. Situation could improve when BLR opens its CAT III capable brand new runway effective Dec 5, 2019. Of course, for CAT III B to truly effective, the aircraft must be certified for its and pilots need to get special certification.

We arrived in December and no Indian airline has ruled through the Haneda slot that these businesses have bad business, but why did they give slots to India? if you are not going to use it, but better give those slots to Switzerland or the Netherlands

Neither the Netherlands nor Switzerland have anything close to the 1.3 billion people that India has. India is among the 10th largest industrial nations in the world with a GDP that far exceeds that of the Netherlands and Switzerland, combined.

India's private carriers are slowly developing and in about 5 years will begin to show its muscle.

The Haneda slot cannot be considered as wasted as yet as Vistara (a 5 year old Indian airline) has already stated that it plans to start service to Tokyo from New Delhi although they haven't indicated whether that would be Haneda or Narita. Have you reason to believe it won't be Haneda?

GoAir will soon overtake Air India in domestic market share.

So for those who refer to GoAir as too small, may have to reconsider the way they refer to the airline. ;)

This is so misleading.

Reads as if some random passenger was asked. As the article headline says CAT-IIIB trained pilot and per the contents, proper procedure followed.

We know the fares last year were a price war with inverted yield (late purchases were discounted).

https://www.ndtv.com/business/jet-airwa ... il-1958732

On 6 December 2018: Jet Airways is offering up to 30 per cent discount on select domestic and international flight tickets under a special year-end sale, noted the carrier on its official website- jetairways.com

Normally, fares go up within 6 weeks of busy season. Now fares are 205% to 250% of last year (105% to 150% increase, the numbers aren't a tripling). Anything less than a 50% increase is not viable due to last year's panic selling by Jet and AI. It was a bloodbath.

There is a shortage of capacity. The supply/demand will correct with Vistara's 789s and AI activating widebodies.

That's too bad. My future cousin-in-law is from India and would love having a nonstop option from ORD that isn't AI.

Though personally I would bet Vistara would start LGW-DEL first before JFK/ORD-DEL.

In other news, DL is flying JFK-BOM starting this month.
Pakistan's aviation sector is coming back. It won't be as strong as our eastern neighbor, nowhere close, but it's going to grow over time. Stand by and watch.

I would take anything ToI writes with a entire bucket of salt. . It's low - at least $2,000 off and so is 65,200 ($914) for Y! That's dirt cheap. And a lot less than what AI usually charges on this flight. It could be introductory sale.And we haven't really gotten into the holiday rush yet....that will happen in about 2 weeks...it will be interesting to see what those people paid.

A non-peak time fare search from SFO - DEL (02/01 - 02/22) yields a min Y at $1600 and min J at $6100 RT. This is for UA104/105 only.

Even I think it's a misinformation by TOI (as usual) . US-India won't require introductory sale during winter months , at least not in such a high business route .
UA silently sent their new polaris J seats equipped 772 in EWR DEL today .
