Air India 787s coming this month

by Matt Falcus

Air India 787sYou may have heard that Air India was refusing to take delivery of any of its Boeing 787 Dreamliners until Boeing offered substantial compensation for the lengthy delays it has encountered in developing and delivery the airliners.

Well, the two parties have come to an arrangement, and you can expect to see the first three examples (a number have been in storage at Everett Paine Field for quite a while) delivered this month!

We always like to see a new airline start flying 787s, and with Air India you can expect it to begin Dreamliner flights from Mumbai to London and Delhi to Melbourne around August.

Initially, the aircraft will be used on domestic routes to enable crew familiarity to be gained.

I’m really glad to hear that they’re getting new airplanes. I flew air India several times (London > Delhi, Delhi > Hydrabad, Hydrabad > Mumbai, Mumbai > London) and felt that the airplane itself left a lot to be desired. It will be great when the new 737s are up in the air on regular routes.
