ORD-PNQ suggestions

Tue Nov 06, 2018 2:39 am

Looking to fly ORD-PNQ next month. What is the best option with minimum layovers and avoiding Air India?

You could do ORD-DXB/AUH-PNQ on Emirates + Spice Jet or Ethiad + Jet Airways.

ORD-FRA-(GYD)-PNQ on LH. Definitely the easiest way. You'll do your customs and immigration in PNQ as opposed to DEL or BOM.

Recently Lufthansa started direct flights between Frankfurt and Pune, so that might be an option. It's the minimum number of layovers, just one.

For the Chicago to Frankfurt leg I'd make sure it's a Lufthansa flight and not a United codeshare. Lufthansa definitely offers a higher service level than United.

LH did not start recently. LH has operated FRA-PNQ for almost a decade. They just restarted the service that was temporarily suspended for a couple of months.
Also the original FRA-PNQ was nonstop but now the flight has a stop in Baku, Azerbaijan.

So technically ORD-FRA-GYU-PNQ is a 2 stop service.

The only convenient 1 stop service is ORD-AUH-PNQ on EY/9W.
