So Delta will supposedly resume flights to Bombay from 2019, now how come suddenly Delta will get slots? what excuse does Jet Airways has now for not taking their B789's?
Delta needs 2 slots at BOM for their flight and will get it.
For 9W to take the 789s they need:
1. A proper network plan to use those 10 aircrafts.
2.Resources like crew, multiple slots not just 2.
3. A modern interior of those 789s. ( Anyways they are upgrading their product so that can be done)
4.Parking bays at an airport like BOM ( because the 789s won't be flying all day unlike the 737MAX)
5.Stable domestic business (which they don't have as per the financial reports of previous few quarters)
And I think I've told you earlier also that if jet didn't want to take those 789s they would've cancelled the order instead of deferring it. Delta is coming to BOM in 2019 so it is possible that jet might announce the deliveries of 789s by 2020. Strange that some people here still want 9W to make a rush for wide bodies like they did 10 years ago and we all know how were the consequences.
9W must be declared as India's national airline. They will indirectly fulfill JRD's vision!!
