Will these dock at the twin arm bridges at KIAL? That would be quite a walk from the domestic section….if they are using busses, boarding is going to have to start quite early! Same case for Delhi – will they dock in the domestic section with single arm bridges?
Jet airways operated DEL-BLR-DEL & DEL-MAA-DEL by 777 on 23rd& 24th. only on 25th it operated with 330-200
