5.5 hours on a 737 sounds tough

Kenya Airways does 6h+ on BOM-NBO! But yes, I agree, anything more than ~3 hours is pretty rough on a small narrowbody.

King Chilli to help Spicejet launch Hong Kong flights

Indian low cost carrier (LCC) Spicejet has opened reservations for flights to Hong Kong from Delhi. The flights are open for sale effective 22nd of November 2018 and operate as per below timings.

SG 31 DEL 2245 – 0640+1 HKG

SG 32 HKG 0740 – 1050 DEL

The airline had attempted a Blue Oceans strategy in 2013 and part of it had launched services to Guangzhou from Delhi in February 2013. The flights which operated 4x weekly at its peak were pulled out by March 2014.

Hong Kong Airport (IATA: HKG) is one of the most congested airports with limited slots on offer and for an airline to obtain these peak slots is an achievement. Air India has been attempting to get slots at Hong Kong to connect the city to Mumbai directly and has been unable to get slots of preference. IATA guidelines help new carriers get priority over existing operators at an airport for slot distribution. Slots can also be leased or purchased at select airports worldwide.

Good for SPiceJet. I wish the LCCs would connect new cities in India to these large international destinations. But I guess the market isn't there? Btw I love Indian aviation articles - either things are huge wins or huge snubs. Great they got slots.

SpiceJet seeks more time to pay for aircraft lease

Oct 23 2018

SpiceJet Ltd has sought a three-month extension from a leasing company for making payments on aircraft leases as a delay in delivery of 737 Max planes by Boeing Co. has caused liquidity issues at the budget airline, said ratings agency Crisil Ltd. Crisil also downgraded its long-term rating on SpiceJet’s bank facilities from BBB stable to BB negative. It also downgraded the short-term rating on the bank facilities from ‘A3+’ to ‘A4’.

“Delay in delivery of Boeing 737 Max aircraft further led to liquidity mismatch as the company was to receive healthy profits on sale and lease back transaction,” Crisil added in the report.

Instruments with A3 rating are considered to have moderate degree of safety, while those with A4 rating are considered to have a minimal degree of safety regarding timely payment of financial obligations.

“The downgrade reflects Crisil’s belief that SpiceJet’s operating performance will remain under pressure in the near to medium term, driven by significant increase in the operating cost and limited ability to pass on the increased cost to customers because of intense competition,” said Crisil.

“Further, SpiceJet was expecting some cash infusion from the sale and lease back transactions that got delayed because of late delivery of the new aircraft. Hence, the liquidity profile has weakened,” it said.

The airline is expected to fund a large part of its aircraft purchases through the sale and lease back mechanism.

SpiceJet planned to take delivery of 15 Boeing 737-8 Max aircraft by March 2018.

“All the funding for Boeing 737-8 Max that is delivered to be us during 2018 and 2019 has been completed,” SpiceJet chairman Ajay Singh said in March, adding that all the aircraft are on sale and leaseback model.

The airline said the ratings downgrade is an industry phenomenon and that it continues to outperform the domestic aviation industry on financial metrics.

“However, with regard to one single lessor mentioned in the Crisil report, we had taken a one-time relief of 2-3 months to better manage cash flows during the lean month of September 2018,” SpiceJet said on Monday.

Do any of you know if there's a photo of VT-MXA anywhere showing its nose name? From what I can make out of the night photo of it through Manchester on Facebook I think it could be Wasabi but perhaps one of you has a nice daytime shot of it in India to share? Smile
