American Airlines increased flights from New York JFK to Delhi
American Airlines has increased the frequency of its new ultra-long-haul route from New York JFK to Delhi. This route is scheduled to begin on October 31 later this year.
After a nine-year hiatus on this route, when it announced the reopening of this route in April, it was scheduled to operate regularly from November 17 to January 1 and three weekly flights for the rest of the year.
However, American recently increased the frequency to a year-round daily service, starting in late October. This route would be served by a Boeing 777-200ER equipped with 273 seats, including 37 seats in business class, 24 in premium economy class and 212 in economy class.
US flight AA292 would depart New York JFK at 8:10 p.m., landing in Delhi the following evening at 7:30 p.m. Return flight AA293 will depart Delhi at 11:55 PM and arrive in New York at 6:30 AM. (All times are in local time)
American Airlines made its last scheduled trip to New Delhi from Chicago on February 28, 2012, aboard a Boeing 777-200.
Currently, three routes serve New Delhi and New York, United’s daily flights from Newark, Air India’s daily flights to JFK, and Air India’s six flights in one week to Newark.
