The airline is launching another flight from Mumbai on their 77W planes, which are the only Jet Airways products to have a first class cabin. The new flight from Jet Airways will be with the following timings, with effect from October 29, 2017.

9W119 LHR1550 – 0615(+1)BOM 77W D
The new flights clearly time very well on connections via London. After Amsterdam and Paris, Jet Airways is also working with Virgin Atlantic and Delta to have more people fly to the USA via London as well. Not just that, it also works very well for Londoners who want to arrive in Mumbai early in the morning to be able to have a full day of work ahead of them. For the tourists as well, these flights work well since they arrive and depart London at times when hotels would be ready to receive them and they don’t have to wait for a room to be ready.
On the pricing front, Jet Airways is working pretty aggressively on this flight for the moment. While flights to the UK from India could cost anywhere in the vicinity of INR 40000 upwards for economy and INR 1.25 Lakhs upwards for Business class, here are some sweet deals on these newly launched flights. For Economy, round trip fares start at INR 35000. For Business, you get a roundtrip at INR 99000, which is a very sweet deal.
It’s good to see a new flight from India by Jet Airways, but I’m just wondering why are they not already opening their own flights to the USA again?
What do you think of this new flight from Jet Airways?
