Air India

Air India has officially confirmed that it will be increasing capacity to ORD-Chicago from April from India via Frankfurt using a Boeing 747-400 on a daily basis. However, the ORD flight will originate and terminate from Delhi rather than Mumbai as AI is building a scissors hub at FRA which sees its EWR flight flown to from BOM via FRA.

Currently, ORD is flown to on a daily basis using a smaller Boeing 777-300ER which however has a superior in-flight product in all 3 cabin classes. In this way, EWR and ORD pax can fly on AI to BOM and DEL via FRA in both directions as connections are easily made available.
