    I need to do this trip very shortly.

    Any preference of airline for anyone? BA for the long haul seciotn…short haul…any ideas?


    Yes, definitely an open-jaw BA for the longhaul. In the absence of Kingfisher, I would go for Jet Airways for the domestic.


    If you dont mind the low-cost option, then Go-Air (www.goair.in) is nearly always the cheapest. On my annual trips to India I have used them loads and not once had a late flight or any problems! Earlier this year flew them to the andaman islands.. flight even left 15mins early, brand new 320, faultless!


    I assume you are breaking your journey in Delhi … ? If not, then consider routing to Bangalore via a Gulf hub.

    Does price come into the equation ? If it does then I would imagine Jet Airways will quote the best price as it flies all sectors you need.

    I wrote about flying to and within India a few months ago in the magazine.


    Another option in and out of Delhi & Bangalore could be Lufthansa via FRA which I think use the 747 – 8 on those routes.

    Domestically I would have chosen Kingfisher as Alexpo mentioned – but not sure if they are around these days and if so how “solid” they are. I think Air India use the 787 on some of the Delhi-Bangalore flights, in case that appeals/scares you off.

    Report back your final choice and subsequent findings!
