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.
