It’s shocking that AA bypassed India’s Tier 1 cities in DEL, BOM, CCU and MAA and went straight to BLR. MAA is southern India’s premier gateway city and has been shockingly bypassed. I hope AA knows it’s geography with this plan..
BLR is a Tier 1 city well AHEAD of MAA and far ahead of CCU (even HYD is ahead of CCU). BLR is a premium heavy yield city which MAA is lacking. Have you ever been to BLR ? The premier gateway city in southern India is BLR, not MAA, BLR has surpassed MAA almost a decade ago and CCU even before that.
If what you are saying is true, things sure have changed down there since 1986.
