Air India to Begin Delhi to Dulles via JFK on December 1
Tags: Air India, New York John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK), Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD)
The move will allow Air India to improve their fleet utilization and earn revenue on an aircraft which currently racks up a dozen hours of parking fees at JFK’s Terminal 4 whenever it arrives from India.
Because they are a non-US carrier, Air India will be unable to offer tickets on the domestic legs of JFK-IAD-JFK, but Air India passengers from Washington will be able to transfer to the carrier’s evening Mumbai service at JFK.
Air India currently has eight 777-200LRs, which carry 238 people in an 8/35/195 configuration. Economy class offers a relatively generous 35-inch seat pitch with 10.6 inch PTVs.
