Apparently the fallout from Kingfisher’s sudden cancellation of flights a couple of weeks ago has not yet ended. A report from shows that Kingfisher may be cancelling a few additional domestic flights.

The following destinations will be cancelled outright; some of these were not currently operated but rather placed into the GDS.

Destinations are spread out across India, but without exception are in most cases Tier 2 and 3 cities (with the exception of maybe Nagpur.

The cancellations are really targeted towards Mumbai. Perhaps this is recognition that for Kingfisher and their cost level, many of these Tier 2 cities will not work?
