One of the more obscure ways of getting from London to New York is on Air India.
The airline flies the route three times per week as a continuation of a flight from Ahmedabad to Heathrow, using ‘fifth freedom’ traffic rights. You could redeem miles for this via any Star Alliance programme.
Air India’s Heathrow to New York service will end on 16th November. The airline will use the landing slots to launch a new service to Bangalore, starting on 17th November. The existing Delhi and Mumbai services from Heathrow will continue as usual.
Another little aviation oddity bites the dust.
