Getting more direct flights between India and the US to cities other than DEL/BOM.

For a AA or UA ORD/DEL-BOM at a minimum.

At a stretch, SFO/LAX/DFW/IAH/ATL/DCA for the same. Outside of DEL/BOM, best shot is for BLR to possibly SFO but that is still a long shot.

BOM 'hub' was flat, possibly due to saturation. Perhaps, should see a dip for 2019.

Interesting mix of airports in the +20% growth category. Perhaps resources will be allocated properly.

I think BOM will see a big dip.A lot of Jet’s international capacity wont come back. Even if the route comes back, highly unlikely 77W will be used. Let’s see how it affects tourist arrivals as well. I think there will be a drop in arrivals from UK, France and Netherlands. Goa could feel the pain this winter.

Actually, I support this move. I think airlines lose less money if airplanes are flying than sitting on the ground.

We have a lot in common then we think.

Concur no wife body is going to fly out anytime soon with the exception of LHR and possibly CDG/JFK etc.

The slots will be replaced, very profitabily, with a bunch of narrow bodies.

Do you mean Indigo? Zero chance as of now. They are going after destinations within 5 hours and chasing BOM and DEL slots for domestic operations. By the time they get interested in AMS and CDG, Jet's slots will be forfeited by the airport authorities. In any case, the Indian Government has no authority to allocate (Jet's) AMS and CDG slots

Huh? Why does profitable slot have to equal ‘AMS’ or CDG?

If all of these routes were so profitable why did 9W go bust!

I don't think so. If done well, marketed well there is and would be enough business to drive business there. For instance if we can have direct flights to Shimla, Nainital or any of the other places there would be lot of business to pull in. Delhi upwards there is enough to drive business but it has to be taken up and it should be cheap enough so it all works out. For this all airports would need to build capacity, Pune of all although dunno if we can expand more than what we have expanded :(

Wow mate, talk about such a shallow statement from (assuming) a fellow Indian!!!

North of Delhi includes areas some which have for decades, been the 'Bread basket' and the most agriculturally fertile regions of India, in Punjab. Not to mention their Dairy, Sugar, Textile industries. Nor to also forget the Massive Pharmaceutical Industries, about 25% of nation's Hydroelectric Power generation, and rich agriculture in Himachal Pradesh, which lest you forgot, is also North of Delhi.

Business: ATQ and IXC. Tourism: DED/Dehradun, IXL/Leh and, to a negligible extent as far as aviation is concerned, SLV/Shimla.

I should rephrase my statement. Apologies.

The incomes North of Delhi don't support air travel on a large scale. Also train connectivity in the northern hills is better than that in the southern hills. Though buses are a lot better in Southern India.

The richest city North of Delhi- Chandigarh has only 5 flights a day currently thanks to a variety of factors

Airports like Calicut have a big gulf component, which is simply missing for northern hilly cities

There are again some in-built assumptions therein. Let's assume there are services there and it adds more tourist. More tourists means more ideas, more businesses. For e.g. Himachal, Garwahal and even Uttranchal has possibility to do lot of horticulture and tourism related businesses. They are always on tourist maps, not just of Indians but also of Westerners.

Just to share https://www.holidify.com/collections/hi ... e-to-india although it says 'hippy' there is lot of crowd which would come in if there is support. And a single airport could probably serve about 100-150 km round about. So it is possible, provided the Government creates the necessary infrastructure and tourists are also served well. And most of these places are and can be open 6-9 months. There is lot of upside if the local Governments and people get serious.

1. IXC/Chandigarh has between 25-30 flights a day with a sprawling new terminal!! Man, are you so far down South in 'Kings Landing' that you have no idea of 'The North'?!!! (Pun intended) Chandigarh also has the highest per capita income of any city in India, and has been so since decades. It also has the most regulated & strict law & order scene of any major city of India.

2. A significant chunk of passengers (over and above the paltry 25-30 daliy flights) also travel to DEL to take their flights owing to a great network of road and rail network between the two cities (approx 300kms road distance)

3. IXC is the most important AFB, AFAIK, in the Northern frontier, and also the base for the C-17 Globemaster s and soon to be added Chinook CH-47 helicopters of IAF. It presence is extremely criticial for all kinds of supplies & equipment to all defense bases in the North. In current times its use has been unparalleled thanks to ongoing hostilities across the borders nearby. Commercial a/c movement hence, is always given a second priority at IXC.

4. While South has the "gulf component", IXC & ATQ have the Canada, UK and US components. But close proximity of DEL and Air Force base at IXC makes direct flights to IXC from abroad almost non-existent.

Airline capacity crisis in the sky: Does it affect your international holiday plan?

There has been a lot of talk about the capacity crisis and subsequent increase in fares in the Indian skies. Airlines are trying very hard to get over the crisis by inducting new aircraft – either by speeding up the deliveries or in some cases taking up aircraft from lessors who are terminating lease with Jet Airways.

What is not talked about is the impact of this on international passengers and what this crisis means for foreigners travelling to India as well as outbound tourist and business travel from India. The airline had five main hubs which comprised of Amsterdam, Paris, London, Singapore and Hong Kong. At each of these places, the airline had strong code-share partnerships with which it helped feed to umpteen destinations beyond these five hubs.

I was shocked to see the airline capacity crisis in numbers, just using BOM-DEL as an example for my own information.

In 2018, there were 61 daily one-way flights on average between the airports, based on sources such as Wikipedia and Aviation websites, and partly on my own memory.

Today, Google tells me that there are 31-35 daily one-way flights between BOM and DEL, depending on the day of the week.

For comparison, DEL-BLR has 33-37 daily one-way flights as of Google’s information today.

I knew Jet’s shutdown had hit BOM and India domestic routes hard, but I had no idea of the magnitudes till I searched for the information.

South also has US component much more than northern Indian cities, heavy IT and VFR traffic flows from HYD (more VFR than IT), followed by BLR and MAA. But the point is well taken, DEL airport traffic catchment area is much of No. India and E. India for international and of course since it is the capital it will get good domestic traffic. However with Indigo, Spice Jet and Air Asia there are more direct flights from BOM and southern metros to No. Indian cities other than DEL..

The loss of 3 X 77W flights between BOM & LHR has got to hurt. Plus Jet's 9:30am departure from BOM was an usually timed BOM-EU flight (which I loved taking - such a pleasure to leave at that time).

I don't think they are venturing into the FSC space. It looks to me as though they are imitating Scoot (they have ScootBiz on their 788 and 789 aircrafts) who are still being advertised as LCC. But the likely hood of success of this strategy with SG will definitely vary as Scoot offers ScootBiz only on their longhauls.

SpiceJet officially launches Business Class, which will be available only on its 9W inducted aircraft network. I'm guessing that's mostly out of BOM/DEL.
Mumbai-Delhi fares for this cabin are approx INR 15,999.

I think it is a great idea. Biz should only exist on routes that warrant it (say BOM-DEL). They should follow GO's lead and have a euro style business class on other routes (coach seats with extra leg room and leave the middle seat empty). Call it coach when not needed or box when needed (maybe have the first two rows be this).

I believe this is likely to be the final outcome of the LCC and FSC. Similar to USA, where in economy you pay for luggage, meal and your seat, while you enjoy premier facilities in the business class. Indian FSC will finally evolve to the same model as they compete with LCC more and more.

The report was attributed to unknown anonymous sources. The same organisms who have said things like 9W will be given money by night and I don't believe any of it.

Does anybody know the new registrations of ex Jet Airways aircrafts flying for SpiceJet. Quite a few of them are flying and somehow they're being tracked by FR24 but registration is unknown e.g SG 277 .

They will start with the VT-SY* series for now for ex-9W birds, till they run out of characters.

As per SpiceJet website 10 ex Jet Airways aircrafts have joined the fleet. Surprisingly, they've kept all the business class seats on the 737-900. Will they be able to fill those?

Apparently, according to insider sources, Vistara's expansion in both domestic and international market stagnated only due to the lack of slots at DEL and BOM. Now with Jet out of the picture, Vistara is purchasing the B777s and A330s of Jet only to fly to destinations like LHR and other American cities, which could be started at a very short notice after the purchase goes through as the crew is to be wet leased. They have also asked Boeing to deliver their 787s (due for delivery in 2020) as soon as possible before the slated dates. Could someone verify the integrity of this information?

If this were true, will Vistara be able to sustain the rapid expansion or is this the start of another one biting the dust?

Why is the flightaware logo for 6E a humanoid shaped banana in front of a blue tail?

On any given route operator with the lowest trip cost wins the financial race. The operator with the lowest CASM wins the internet.

Widebody Ops -> Debt -> Demise
Full Service Ops - Loss -> Demise
ULH Ops -> Loss -> Demise

6x789s are borderline balance sheet busters, 10 more WBs with FSC/Hybrid on LH/ULH missions add 25,000 Crores to Tata Group debt pile

1. It means airlines ordering A321 over A320 do not know what they are doing.
2. Obviously the airlines cramming in more seats, which increases trip costs, have no idea what they are doing.
3. The 787 is the only widebody to consider vand the NMA will rule the market. ;)

Or, many users attempts to describe yield management have failed and someone will be surprised which airlines thrive.
