While Air India continues to wait for approval to take delivery of its 787, it has quietly been preparing for its operation to Sydney and Melbourne. Tentative schedules for Sydney and Melbourne have been released, however Delhi schedules have not been released yet. The inaugural flight will take place on September 1st from Delhi.

It is obviously very frustrating to not have the official Delhi timings. Multiple phone calls and an email to Air India (unsurprisingly) went unanswered. The media gag order at AI is one thing I really hate about the airline.
