9W began AUH before they began DXB back in 2006-07. They did sell DXB on their website, and those pax were bused in 9W/EY liveried buses from AUH to DXB.
Not sure how popular those services were considering the abundance of services between India and DXB, but 9W soon launched DXB and SHJ anyway.
If this came to pass, how would this affect Saudi Arabian? Any of their flights fly through Iran?Jump to post

So will Lufthansa be yet another carrier who will shed the 346 and continue flying the 343 for a few more years?
Question; Does (and if so, what is) Qatar have a limit on the amount of seats that it can weekly serve to India? Though, I am sure that it is likely outdated; http://www.dgca.nic.in/bilateral/mouqatar1206.pdf seemingly sets limits. The Qatar - India bilateral has not been revised since 2009, and th...Jump to post
There is probably nothing much to this, especially if the end of this month (August) comes around and everybody is paid on the scheduled date.
If this was 9W or 6E I doubt it would have made the news even.

The airplane climbed to a max altitude of 24K feet and a top speed of 315ks. I don't buy the theory that the crew had no idea about this. There is more to the story than what is written here and we have to wait until the facts emerge. For what its worth, the aircraft flew other sectors that day (22/...Jump to post

P&W have been attempting these fixes for close to two years now. You'd think it would be quicker to start from a blank slate and make a new engine!
It reflects very poorly on them in particular, especially given their past track record with both manufacturers.
I am going to vote with my purse, and sadly my next flight is with Air India, but next time given an option i will prefer anyone else. The Gujjufication of Air India is complete. In order to save Rs 8crs yearly, a company that loses 1000s and 1000s of crs yearly, has decided to alienated 70% of Ind...Jump to post
If I can change the OP's question in an attempt to generate some discussion: might there have been other factors always at play during the AA - 9W partnership that proved untenable especially when DL came onboard, besides the fact that AA and DL are competitors themselves?Jump to post
What needs to wane is every corner of India thinking their immigrants to the various corners of the world mean a profitable nonstop flights should exist. I can't think of one really point to point long haul outside of BOM & DEL (by an Indian or foreign carrier). AI's AMD-LHR-EWR is probably the...Jump to post

China needs a crash course on airplane liveries.
They're all so beaten up without exception.
Has the LOI on the 737MAX been finalized as an order? Yes, as of today: The airline's chief executive Akbar Al Baker disclosed at the Paris air show today that he had finalised an agreement for 20 737 Max 8s first announced last October, along with 40 options and purchase rights.

Go figure. It's not hard to connect the dots.
Not sure why Indian carriers (AI, 9W, 6E, SG, IX) have to detour the UAE while flying to Qatar though India has no dog in this fight.
A reciprocal move prohibiting Emirates from using Indian airspace won't be fun for them, surely.
9W has lost a lot of market share over the last 10 years to the other domestic carriers, IndiGo in particular. With the ATRs leaving too and IndiGo picking up 50 of them, you'd think that they need as much metal as they can get. Which is why an order for only 75 x 737s - with many of them slated to ...Jump to post
