Read today that Air India is planning a non-stop Bangalore - SFO connection. Cool! Long pending, this thing was. I have always wondered why Jet or Air India haven't tried to eat into all the money Lufthansa, Singapore, British etc are making on Bangalore - US West Coast routes. I bet once KingFisher gets its permit to fly abroad, we'd have another BLR-SFO direct.

any idea how long these flights will take? i like my break after 8 hours. stretch about, gitt some coffee, even if heavily overpriced. sitting for 14 hrs non stop in a pressurized chamber is a downer man. especially if force fed samosas and all.

About 17 hours?

SF should be about 9000 miles direct (wild guess, its 10k miles via London). 600 miles an hour puts this at 15 hours. Add 2 more and you get 17. BTW, Singapore to NY/JFK non-stop is about 18-19 hours if I remember it right. This should be a few hours less than that.

Didn't we hear a similar story 5 years back (it was not a direct flight out of SFO, but ANY flight between SFO and BLR was welcome!!!). I just hope Air India doesn't play another joke on us. Oh Well, NY is anyway far more importnant than SFO "economically speaking"...yeah right!!!
