Jet Airways To Start BOM-PVG-SFO In Feb. 2008

Will be nice to finally see an Indian carrier at SFO, which needs at least one.

If AI starts up flights to BLR, that'd be a boon too.

Better late than never, but I wonder how much lift 9W will actually offer India-China, since it is likely as with Brussels most passengers fly through to the US

Does this include 5ths PVG-SFO-PVG from both the Chinese and Americans?

I wish they would quickly upload the schedules on the GDS system - my next SFO trip is likely in the first week of Feb and I might consider trying 9W on this sector!

IIRC, 9W always stated that they would start up the route if that 5th freedom right is granted. It should be tha case.

Feb 2008 is well within the time frame that 9W was hoping for. I guess they'll need at least two 777s to be allocated on that route. So I'm not too sure BRU will get a new 777 route by feb 2008.

In terms of mileage for the BOM-SFO traffic, a routing through PVG is about 500nm shorter than a stop in BRU.

LAX is confirmed for 2008...routing is BLR-BRU-LAX daily with a B 773ER according to 9W YYZ office. Originally they wanted to fly the A 332 to LAX but now they feel the need to put F class on this route hence the B 773ER is needed.

Also confirmed for April 2008 is daily A 332 to ORD from AMD via BRU.

In light of the above, Jet should reconsider its decision to fly BOM-PVG-SFO as they had planned to make PVG a mini hub for flights to SFO and LAX.

Since LAX will be via BRU, why bother with SFO via PVG; instead offer a terminator BOM-PVG flight, and offer India-SFO via BRU.

Here's a likely list of cities served via BRU:
NA Cities:
JFK, EWR, YYZ, ORD, LAX, IAD, SFO(?)

Indian Cities:
BOM, DEL, MAA, AMD, BLR, CCU, HYD

This will give 49 city-pair one-stop flights via BRU. I would expect this to be completed by end of 2009.

Any other city(NA or Indian) that you think will make economic sense?

As for NA cities, here are a few more i can think of - IAH, DFW, BOS, DEN (maybe), YVR, SEA (maybe), MIA/MCO (maybe).

Indian cities- I can't think of any other airport other than the ones you mentioned, maybe ATQ, PNQ, JAI, LKO but i think this might take a while. I am not sure if these airports can handle 773ER's or the A332 (infrastructurally) besides ATQ.

I guess once these cities get modern airports, it could be a posibility. Or else, 9W can expand into NA with the same 6 destinations and offer double dailies to BRU.

Interesting that fifth freedom rights are available on routes between China and the US, while US carriers are strongly competing for limited frequencies between the US and China. I assume that China must agree to the flights, have they?

Thanks for the details, so it seems that LAX will be served via BRU but SFO will be served via the Pacific (PVG). There has been much discussion concerning how Jet will connect the US West Coast cities and India.

As mentioned in other threads concerning Jet's BRU hub......thus far, Jet has been far more focused on moving passengers between the US and India via BRU than the BRU-USA and BRU-India markets; Jets airplanes arrive from India or the US filled, and go out to India or the US filled....with limited pax headed to or departing from BRU. As destinations and flights are added to the schedule, I assume that Jet will begin boarding more pax at BRU and maybe then we will see some type of alliance with Brussels Airlines.

PVG would probably be higher yeilding for 9W. The only competition they will have is with UA. It appears 9W will offer a far superior product than UA on this route. Also, they will probably pick up extra cargo destined for the U.S.

Perhaps, Jet will offer SFO via BRU in couple of years, if not sooner.

As far as I know, pax transferring through PVG does not need to have a transit visa. Furthermore, I think passengers are allowed to go out of the airport during transfer. Certain nationalities are even allowed to stay in transit for 48 hours, including US citizens.

This seems like something that will be much to the annoyance of the American carriers that are fighting for US-China frequencies. I wouldn't be surprised if U.S. Congress alters the treaty to preclude US-India open skies treaty from applying to U.S.-China fifth freedom rights. The U.S. airlines have a lot of lobbying power in Congress.

Why SFO over SJC? The number of Chineese and Indians in the Silicon Valley surrounding SJC is huge, and rapidly growing. I can't see how that would be worse than SFO.

The India-China MOU allows for 42 weekly frequencies by Indian Carriers to China of which 14 are permitted fifth freedom rights beyond or enroute to China. AI is already utilising some of these by flying India-Bkk-Pvg. 9W is therefore allowed to fly 7 frequencies on Pvg-Sfo and pick up traffic.
However, this bilateral rules out a scissor hub (ie Bom-Pvg-SFO and Blr-Pvg-Lax etc) - so at best 9W can fly termintor flights to Pvg from Del or Blr (which will have enough demand for 3x-4x weekly) and time them to link up with the Bom-Pvg-SFO flights.
Also, the India-USA Air Transport Agreement allows such fifth freedom rights to airlines of both sides with no limitations- indeed both were/are being utilised (AI on LHR-JFK, CDG-EWR, FRA-ORD, NW on AMS/BOM, DL earlier on CDG-MAA). The open skies agreement between the USA and India is an extremely liberal accord and entered into force in 2005..therefore dont think politicians from either side can meddle.

Then it wouldn't be Open Skies.

In the same way that airlines like Air India and Kuwait Airlines have been allowed to fly between the United States and Heathrow for decades while airlines like Delta and US Airways were locked out, the U.S. will do absolutely nothing about Jet Airways being granted rights San Francisco-Shanghai rights by the Chinese government.

I, in a way, wish they'd fly via BRU, as it would be another option to fly to Europe from SF, but I suppose it makes more business sense to tap into the HUGE SFO-Shanghai market.

Can't wait to see them there. They are hiring at SFO right now too.

Great for JET to offer service to the USA over both Oceans. While BRU sounds neat, the next step should be NONSTOP to the USA. Mumbai to Newrak with a 773ER would be great.

It might "be the smartest move" but there is a question of Flying Rights, between countries and allotment of frequencies to go with those ASAs,

http://sify.com/finance/fullstory.php?id=14552865

Quotes:
Jet Airways hopes to soon sort out the slots issue that is preventing it from launching flights to China and onwards to the US.

“The Chinese side has given us a 2 a.m. slot. This does not suit us and we will be looking to exchange this at a global slot exchange meeting scheduled to be held soon. This is normal in the industry and we do not foresee any problem in launching the India-Shanghai-San Francisco flight early next year,” the official said.
