Are CX 77Ws 9 across or 10 across? I suppose CX must be doing well on the Bay Area - MAA traffic.

What is the point of having two flights so close together in timing (both in BOM and DEL)? Clearly these flights are more about their connecting bank than O&D. Unless people think only red eyes work from DEL-HKG?

HKG is an expensive destination for both Indian tourists and businessmen. Red eyes operating Eastward save the cost of a hotel for one night. Why do you think over 99% of transatlantic flights are also red eyes?

It's not just CX, but both AI and Jet who also exclusively operate red eyes from India to HKG.

It's no conspiracy.

Aren't most of AI's and Jet's HKG passengers O&D?

If so there is no reason why AI and Jet should operate red eye flights to HKG.

Besides, Jet's planes sit on the tarmac in HKG for a whole day before returning, which is a waste of aircraft.

Not really Jet flies a lot of passengers on to Australia,Phillippines, East Asia and West Coast of code share flights.

And for the avg Indian tourist - it wud mean additional hotel night or a day of sightseeing wasted.
