So after years of rumours about Kuwait which have all came to nothing they are now about to start flights with virtually no lead in time, in the midst of a global pandemic which has all but killed international air travel and at a time when anyone entering the country has to isolate themselves for two weeks? Pull the other one!

If you have an issue with it, speak to KU, there the ones who are starting the route. Maybe they should take more directions from forum CEO's, it's where they have clearly been going wrong all this time.

Haha, maybe. But surely now is the worst possible time for any airline to be starting any new route? When even the mighty Emirates have grounded their fleets what chance does Kuwait have?

TAP adding a nightstopping flight this winter and a 3rd daily on some days.

I did read somewhere that Delhi is just postponed for this year, does anyone know how true this is?


I imagine that the word “postponed” reflects the most politically astute way of saying “cancelled”!

It might be postponed in the sense that the aspiration remains to launch Delhi from Manchester in time, but the truth is more likely that there is no timeframe on it and the airline itself might not last long enough to see through that plan in any event.

If VS is still flying in 2022 and the world is back to something approaching normality, I’d say there is a good chance Delhi, Cegas and perhaps elsewhere come back in the radar for VS at Manchester.


Very probably you're right. I think after the success of Jet Airways on the BOM route, they'd be fools not to keep it on the back burner though.
