Finnair will use an A343 (OH-LQA) on it's DEL flight instead of the usual MD-11 for two days in June:
HEL-DEL AY021 June 23rd and 24th and DEL-HEL AY022 June 24th and 25th.

The starting date for HEL-BOM has been pushed from June 17th to June 26th (arriving to BOM on the morning of 27th). That flight will also be operated with OH-LQA, an A343, for the summer.

Any reasons for this change in Schedule? And what does this 343 (OH-LQA) do right now?

Right now it's flying to NRT (all 4 flights per week) and PVG (2 out of the 6 weekly flights).

Quoting Nimish (Reply 50):

Finnair will receive the first brand new A343 (OH-LQB) in May and a second new one (OH-LQC) in June and those will take over NRT and PVG flights as well as NGO for 3 out of 4 flights (the fourth will be LQA).

The guess is that LQC is a bit late and something has to be done to operate the flights... and that's why BOM is pushed to June 26th and some routes will get a different a/c.

I met up with Ajay Singh of SpiceJet and Bruce Ashby of Indigo recently, and from all indications, these two guys are not slowing down their operations. SpiceJet expects to have a fleet of 17 aircraft by end 2007 and these will include the first and second 737-900ER, and the fleet will increase to 23 by 2008-end. Indigo will have 15 planes by end 2007 and 23 by end-2008 if all goes to plan. More details coming soon.

India thanks Pak for help in Siachen
NDTV Correspondent
Wednesday, April 11, 2007 (New Delhi)
For the first time in the 25-year long Siachen dispute India on Wednesday thanked Pakistan for help at the glacier.

But this was in the backdrop of tragedy after an Indian Air Force Cheetah helicopter crashed close to the boundary and both the pilots belonging to the Siachen Pioneers died.

IAF's Cheetah helicopter that took off from the base camp situated at an altitude of 16,400 feet, crashed at around 7:00 am (IST) in the central Siachen glacier.

The Indian government said in a statement that it deeply appreciated the cooperation extended by the Pakistan authorities in aerial and ground based rescue operations.

This cooperation comes at a time when the two countries have been holding peace talks over Siachen but failed to make any breakthrough.

Hello, does any one know which countries flight CO82 (EWR-DEL) flies over on its path? I could not find that anywhere. On the online CO route map the line passes over Africa, but I would have more expected something like Ireland-UK-Netherlands-Germany-Russia-India. Is there anyway to know that, please? I guess another direct flight would have the same itinerary, I am just curious about where I will fly over when I go soon.

Mulford in Mumbai airport drama

Quote: "Air Traffic Control officials at Mumbai airport were aghast when a foreigner couple disembarked from their small aircraft stalled on the taxiway on Tuesday evening, raising security concerns. Unknown to them at the point of time, the couple was US ambassador David Mulford and his wife, who landed in a Beechcraft King Air C-12. They got off the plane before it could reach the parking bay as the cockpit got filled with smoke. "...

EgyptAir will be extending their twice weekly CAI-BOM A330-200 flight to KUL from 02JUN07. A third weekly frequency will be added on the route from 02JUL07. Negotiations are currently taking place with the Malaysian CAA to grant the airline fifth freedom rights on the BOM-KUL-BOM sectors (already granted by the Indian authorities).

The flight schedule will be as follows:

CAI BOM MS968 1-3--6- 03:00/11:10 5hr40min 0 A332
BOM KUL MS968 1-3--6- 12:10/19:50 5hr10min 0 A332
KUL BOM MS969 -2-4--7 00:40/03:10 5hr00min 0 A332
BOM CAI MS969 -2-4--7 04:10/07:50 6hr10min 0 A332


The Egypt-India bilateral air service agreement, which was updated earlier this year, allows EgyptAir 7 weekly flights to India and DEL is rumoured as the next Indian destination from October 2007.

Hello fellow desis:

There is a great site called www.flightmemory.com where you can record all your flights and draw route maps and stuff like that. I am trying to convince the very helpful developers to add an India centric map. I have convinced them that there are enough Indian aviation buffs out there. It would be great if you signed up and attested to this. Also, if you do, please send me a PM so I can let them know more Indians have signed up. So far, they only have a U.S. map - but with enough of us, we can get one for India as well. Thanks so much and good luck. Its a GREAT site!

Jet to rebrand and operate Air Sahara as a LCC?
http://www1.economictimes.indiatimes...bt-free_co/articleshow/1913371.cms


Quotes:
Jet Airways is planning to run the Air Sahara operations as a separate debt-free company without integrating the two balance sheets. Lucknow-based Air Sahara will, however, be rebranded and operated, most likely as a low-cost airline, within a few months.

For Jet, it makes sense to run Air Sahara as a separate operation as the company will have no major cost head except the operating spends like salaries, the sources said. Senior Jet officials will help run the airline operations.

The new airline will also be used to operate a low-cost service on the Gulf routes, a money-spinner for the public sector trio of Indian, Air India and Air India Express.

Jet Airways and Air Sahara are the only two private airlines with permission to fly to the Gulf from January 2007. “The price-sensitive market can be easily served by an efficient airline with aggressively priced seats,” says an airline official. The government airlines currently control roughly 50% of the India-Gulf traffic, which to a large extent subsidises their losses on other routes.

I guess the A330's Jet gets will be used on the big routes (BOM-DXB) and some of the 737's will move to the smaller cities. I also understand that as more A330's come in, certain sectors (such as SIN) will also get upgraded freeing up some 737 for newer routes.

Story on Jet's 773ER configuration.
http://www1.economictimes.indiatimes..._aircrafts/articleshow/1915546.cms

Giving details of the configuration of its Boeing 777-300 ER aircraft, Goyal said Jet Airways has created the first airline suite in the sky offering its customers the ultimate privacy and luxury. Each of the eight first class suite providing over 26 square feet of usable space features dual sliding doors that gives complete privacy for the passengers, he said.
These suites will have the world's longest first class bed of 83 inches, massive 23 inch flat screen monitors and carefully designed storage areas, including a personal hanging wardrobe and under ottoman stowage. The suite is also designed to allow dining for two, multiple lighting option, a variable lumbar support and an eight-point massage system.

While Boeing 777-300 ER will be configured in three classes -- first class, premier and economy, the A330 will be configured in two classes of 30 premier and 190 economy seats.

Jet Airways will launch daily services to New York via Brussels in early August the Boeing 777. It also plans daily services to San Francisco via Shanghai with B777 fleet in the winter of 2007. The A330 will be deployed on daily Delhi-London services and flights from India to Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Johannesburg and Toronto via Brussels.

Jet renames Air Sahara as 'Jetlite'

Quote:
Jet Airways, which acquired ailing rival Air Sahara for Rs 1,450 crore last week, announced that it would position the newly acquired carrier in between a low-fare and full-service airline.

I personally think it is quite a lame name...but may be it's just me.

Kingfisher snaps ground-handling deal with Indian, and expects to save Rs. 60 crores(US $13.5 million) annually.
http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/...ith_Indian/articleshow/1916770.cms

Quotes:
Kingfisher Airlines is terminating the ground handling agreement with Indian, which it struck at the time of inception two years back. The Vijay Mallya-led airline is ending the contract, which heralded a large outsourcing deal worth Rs 120 crore annually with Indian, as it is opting for self-ground handling, a company official said. The development comes at a time when Kingfisher Airline was looking at re-negotiating the contract, which was perceived to be an expensive affair for the airline, sources added.

Mr Mallya had earlier hinted at the re-negotiating the deal. “The ground-handling deal with Indian estimated approximately at Rs 120 crore annually would result in significant savings besides improving efficiencies,” Rajesh Verma, executive V-P, Kingfisher Airlines, told ET.

Sources said Kingfisher could save up to 50% having opted for self ground-handling that comprises passenger handling at the city side of the airport and aircraft handling. It also includes loading and unloading of aircraft, fuelling, cleaning and push-back facilities.

So will maintenance still be with IC, but only the handling moves to IT? What about the access to the IC terminals across the country - any changes to that?
