Air India Loads DEL - BOM - DEL

Mon Mar 20, 2006 1:47 pm

Hello.
My mother is traveling to India non rev. Hopefully she will get lucky and get F ORD - DEL. She wants to go from DEL to BOM on May 8th flights after 9pm either AI 311 or AI 112. Return from BOM to DEL will be on may 18th or 19th. Can any AI employee tell me how the loads are for those flights to plan and see if I send her non rev or comfirmed?

Thanks,

MGASJO

Not an AI employee, but this might be useful:

The "late night flights" (8pm - 8am) are normally quite full, coz they are on discounted rate. I took these flights several times, and while many pax continued en route to wheresoever the plane went (in my case ORD and JFK), many had domestic only passes, indicating a large share. Season does not really matter in my experience, coz AIs rates are extraordinarily well.

If I were you, I would rather go fur the confirmed ticket or book a cheap flight well in advance. Since you do not seem to be Indian, only US$ tickets qualify (not with Air Deccan though).

Hope this helps. But double check with other indian members

Im not all that sure, but i do belive there is a flight from BOM-DEL-SIN and when my cousin went on the night flight he said it was totally full. Coming back he took off at night again, also on SIN-DEL-BOM and he said the flight was empty, possibly because the flight departs 3am from DEL i would suppose, but DONT take my word as i am 99% wrong on these loads

The trip was taken in December

Regards
Hmmmmm....

I would say it's risky to non-rev on a domestic AI sector.....as the discounted fare is quite attractive, the flights usually go full....a flight leaving at 3am is as likely to be full as one leaving at any other time...the occassional flight may go a little light but that would be quite unpredictable I think....
