On 15 October, Air India adjusted the routing of its Delhi—San Francisco flight to increase the distance of the flight by over 1000 kilometers. In doing so, however, the airline saved 2 hours and 15 minutes of flying time. How did they manage that? In a word: wind.
wind are really important for the aviation, thx atmosphere
very very very interesting post. Hope we had much more of this!
Interesting. As the return comes back With the old routing the plane actually goes around the whole world in a return trip.
We do have a lot more of this, and most airlines use the wind as the primary determinant for routing decisions on long haul flights.
in the forum? didnt see any other related issue as this one, thanks for the info!
Global with these winds is going to be great!
Will be really fun trying to plan routes to land in time :)
