|This may have been discussed dime-a-doz in various fora, but I would like to know the foll:
1) Operational cost of having a mixed fleet A320, B738 for short and med-ops.
2) Penetration of lucrative markets in EUR, North Am- will the fleet of 77L and 77Ws suffice?
3) India seems to have more potential as a country focus-city operations.
There may not be potential to create DXB/ SIN/HKG style hubs which operate scissor flights to Asia.
The 787s should be used to open routes from BLR, HYD, MAA, CCU, AMD, ATQ PNQ etc.
4) Reduce focus on ownership of developing B/C routes within India (with the proliferation of private airlines).
