9W has made a few more changes in their international schedules in S17

1. From 26th March re-timing of 1 of 2 daily BOM AUH and LKO AUH - both have shifted to a later departure from India (1940 for LKO, 2045 for BOM) and both have become turn around flights with departures around midnight from AUH. 9W in all has 9 daily flights to AUH - 2 daily each from BOM and DEL and single dailies from COK, PNQ, HYD, IXE and LKO.
There could be further changes and there would likely be re-timing of some domestic flights ex LKO and HYD to position aircraft
.

7th Daily DEL LKO announced. Departs DEL at 1645 and LKO at 720

Jet Airways directs more flights to Europe; strengthens Air France-KLM alliance

April 10, 2017

Jet Airways, intends to extend its partnership with the Air-France-KLM Group and Delta Air Lines by attempting to introduce direct flights to Amsterdam and Paris.

According to a national daily, Jet Airways may have already finalised the plans to direct a flight from Bengaluru to Amsterdam, and the other from Chennai to Paris. Jet airways may commence its operations from early winter even as it will be using Airbus A330 for the said route.

As of now, Jet Airways has a direct flight from Delhi and Mumbai to Amsterdam.

Naresh Goyal owned Jet Airways, entered into a commercial agreement with Air France-KLM and Delta, last year to provide codeshare flights on European and North American routes.

Jet Airways can connect to Atlanta, Boston, Detroit, Minneapolis, Portland, Miami, Salt Lake City and Seattle, through Amsterdam. This route may also help Jet airways connect to Mexico City via Air France-KLM flights.

A Chennai-Paris flight? Somehow I doubt it. At best, they'll slap the same flight number on a Chennai-Mumbai connector for their BOM-CDG flight.

9W doesnt work on a "connector flight" mode, unlike AI. I dont think they have any such ops.

That is what they should do, for a Chennai - Paris direct flight will be a mega fail.

Bengaluru - Amsterdam won't work either. KLM thought of it in the past, only to cancel even the inaugural;

BLR-AMS and MAA-CDG did not work more than a decade ago. But things have changed and there are more passengers willing to go non stop to Europe (and to connect to many cities within Europe and some to North America).

In addition AMS is one of the few airports which does not require Indian citizens to have a transit visa when travelling to countries (other than US/Canada/EU). So AMS might work (either from BLR or MAA).

Other LHR, I dont think any of the other hubs requires Indians to have a transit visa.

I have personally transited via CDG/VIE/BRU/FRA/MUC to non-EU/US/Canada from India.

I actually think you missed the main thing that changed - an Indian carrier now has an alliance with AF/KL/DL. That's the game changer. Why Indian carriers resisted partnering before is a huge mystery for me just as the true ownership of some of the airlines is a mystery to me as well. 9W is doing exactly what it should. The Skyteam flyer base plus 9W's India origin pax should continue to make all of this work. I think the one thing missing is a way to fly into BOM earlier in the day. Having all US origin flying land into India 11pm on, doesn't allow for easy connections to smaller cities. I'll keep saying, I think JFK-BOM is needed with timings like AI has from EWR. That said, is the 9W AUH strategy dead? It seems like they have a new girlfriend.

I didn't miss the "main thing." I'm aware of the loose alliance 9W has had with AF/KL/DL for awhile. What I'm skeptical about is 9W's attempts at launching nonstop flights from MAA and BLR to European hubs. For these flights to make money, there has to be a decent mix of connecting and O&D pax, and unless others have the data to prove it, I'm doubtful if MAA can support a CDG flight with connecting pax only. Note that they don't say "nonstop," so that's why I think these could be same AC or same flight number services via BOM or DEL.

So my guess is that AF & KL are each trying to get more feed into their hubs - so 9W adds one each to CDG & AMS. This is clearly about managing transatlantic capacity especially outside of peak summer season. With the ME3, its really India that can add feed (which other big market would fly via Europe to get to NA?). You also see this with Virign and 9W to BOM from the US (they are a cheap option). So use US-India pax to help keep yields high on US-Europe and Europe-India, use the discounted seats for US-India thereby competing with and hurting the ME3. Win win for both.

Ultimately 9W's flights outside of BOM & DEL won't work without both Skyteam and 9W elites. If 9W cannot incentivized India origin travelers to use them to Europe and US, then its over. The local carrier always has the advantage. If 9W can't come up with ways to keep their travelers loyal, god help them.

Incident: Jet Airways AT72 at Delhi on Apr 19th 2017, nose wheel turned 90 degrees for landing

A Jet Airways Avions de Transport Regional ATR-72-212A, registration VT-JCQ performing flight 9W-2882 from Dehra Dun to Delhi (India) with 60 passengers and 5 crew, performed a normal approach to Delhi's runway 29, however the nose gear was rotated by 90 degrees. The aircraft came to a stop on the runway with the nose tyres and wheels abraded. There were no injuries.

The runway was closed for about 1.5 hours until the aircraft was towed off the runway.

The airline reported the aircraft suffered a nose wheel malfunction resulting in steering problems.

Great addition. Some doubt on MAA-CDG, but things may have changed, it could succeed, especially in the light of the electronics ban in the cabin from DXB and Abu Dhabi.

And so it begins. Comes at the right time as well. Big question is if AF will retain their metal into BLR. I think they are 6/5 days a week winter/summer. Maybe stabilize at 5 days year round to maintain the presence. I wonder if the tight turn arounds in BLR and MAA will affect reliability or does 9W swap wide bodies in and out of their cities like the US carriers do (I feel like Indian carriers tend to have birds just go back and forth rather than CDG-BLR-BOM). I really hope AF/KL/DL/9W stay serious on this partnership and ensure the pax transit experience is good. Have some Indian staff (don't care who employs them) at AMS and CDG to help out. Ensure no offensive treatment if IRROPS (really common sense customer service that airlines give to Japanese and Chinese travelers but somehow don't to Indian). Also 9W needs to improve around the edges. Why not offer an amenity kit in J on day flights (if you read reviews they get reamed for this). For god sakes, things are so cheap in India, offer eye mask, mouth wash and ear plugs in coach too. Finally improve English movie selection to include new movies. Why Indian carriers have this issue is beyond me. Premium pax care and tons of Indians watch English movies (especially US/UK born).

Finally for all those that say the ME3 brought cheap fares to India which makes them worth it, the AF/KL/DL/9W partnership also is bringing cheap fares. Basically it seems AF/KL/DL and VS are offering a good chance of the transatlantic cheapo seats for India pax. This way they push up fares US-Europe O&D and allow the effective fare Europe-India to go up (for a US-India fare). Its really a brilliant way to combat the ME3. Of course it means one-step to other regions suffer but what markets really are there that need US one stop via Europe. It seems like the fight for US-ME is ceded to ME3 plus TK.

In less than a year watch them cut these flights. They're notorious for doing stuff like this.

Both tourist and H1B traffic to the US is slowing in light of the current clown in the White House.

You may be right. My guess is that KL/DL and AF are determined to make them work by giving a "subsidy" by which I mean cheap connecting seats on the US-Europe leg to the US-Europe-india ticket. I am assuming that they did the math and determined having India traffic fill the back of the bus is valuable AND the best way to hurt the ME3 was India. On Anet I think a lot of people like to think that the ME3 survives on mythical ME traffic and LHR-OZ. Seems like AF/DL/KL know the real prick point. But I do agree 9W would not just start these routes and keep them on their own. What does EY think?

On A.net, the usual racist fratboy types from AngloSaxonia (like the rotten US carriers) still think of the Indian market as garbage. In all my years of traveling at the pointy end in and out of India, I've never seen anyhting other than a full premium cabin.

AF/KL and the other EU majors have been doing this for years, if not decades now. It still didn't stop the ME3 from making inroads.

I know many people, particulary the more conservative older generation, who actually prefer travelling the ME3 to EU carriers. A lot of people like the fact that one can even speak Hindi in Dubai during transit.

ME3 has made inroads primarily from cities other than BOM/DEL and to some extent from BOM/DEL/BLR due to multiple frequencies to these cities. With the addition of BLR and MAA now AI and ME3 have some competition for 1 stops as long as the fares are competitive.

The Boeing 777-300ER (reg. VT-JEW) dumped fuel before landing and was parked on a remote stand. No damage visible from the outside.

On A.net, the usual racist fratboy types from AngloSaxonia (like the rotten US carriers) still think of the Indian market as garbage. In all my years of traveling at the pointy end in and out of India, I've never seen anyhting other than a full premium cabin.


But given American carriers and their lousy service, grumpy FAs, rubbish meals, and of late, the tendency to throw fare paying passengers out of the plane on a whim, one could imagine that most people will avoid them like the plague even if they did operate multiple daily flights to India.

So I guess it is mutual avoidance.

Jet Airways passenger tweets ‘hijack’ to PM Modi after flight diversion, delay

http://indianexpress.com/article/india/jet-airways-passenger-claims-hijack-threat-after-flight-delay-4631361/

After a Mumbai-Delhi Jet Airways flight was diverted to Jaipur reportedly due to bad weather conditions and air traffic congestion, a passenger on board tweeted to Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying the aircraft could have been “hijacked”. “@narendramodi sir we have been in jet airways flight for past 3 hrs , looks like hijacked, pl help 9W355,” the passenger, who had boarded from Mumbai, wrote on Twitter on Thursday.

Following up on his tweet, airport security officials immediately conducted a thorough search at the Jaipur airport. The passenger too was offloaded and questioned. Flight 9W355, carrying 176 people on board, was delayed by a few hours due to the diversion

Jet Airways spokesperson later said the tweet necessitated activation of the security protocol. “The information was promptly shared with the authorities concerned including the CISF, and the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS) and local law enforcement agencies in line with Standard Operating Procedures,” he said. The spokesperson also added that the passenger was subsequently offloaded for questioning.

The aircraft was checked before it took off to Delhi. Acting JIA director M P Bansal told news agency PTI that five other Jet Airways and one Oman Air flight were diverted to Jaipur airport owing to traffic congestion.




Twitter is full of idiots like this guy. Unnecessary tweet to PM. Delayed the full flight for being overtly smart.
