Air India to Begin Delhi to Dulles via JFK on December 1

Air India will begin flying to Washington, DC (Dulles) on Dec. 1 by adding an additional leg to their Delhi (DEL) to JFK route, using their Boeing 777-200LRs.

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.
