Some new flights from USA to India which might be of interest

Northwest from October MSP-AMS-Bangalore daily with Northwest, connections from DTW and BOS at AMS. Next month Delta start NYC-Paris-Chennai (Madras ) daily flights. Jet Airways now have 3 Airbus A 340's arranged for their new flights from NYC to India starting later in the year.

Actually all these new flights are the result of an open skies document signed between India and US 2 days back. According to this agreement, there will no limit on the number or destinations of airlines from operating flights between India and the US. This will probably mean lower prices and more direct flights within the next one or two years. Have fun!!

HAving just flown on JAL on a packed 747 as well as an A-300 with no bulhead seats available (too many babies) what are the best seats for these long haul flights other than generic "aisle" which I had and much prefer over "window"? any advice? interesting that on the JAL haul from Narita to JFK rows up to 50 were business and from 51 - 68: economy. expect to soon see no economy flights and every single seat was taken!

I think the JAL routes into JFK are very much orientated towards the Business traveller and it's true that many JAL 747s have a very high number of Business Class seats. I think the balance really is to try Eva Air deluxe Economy, with the 2 x 4 x 2 seating and extra legroom as a couple you can have 2 seats together or if on your own get an aisle seat in the middle block ( increasing your chances of having an empty next to you ). For value it's probably the best balance going.
