Problem with that, apparently this first 789 doesn’t have crew rest areas so they’re limited to 6-8 hour flights like London and Tokyo.

Not sure if their other 5 will be the same.

I guess that works as well… maybe they can codeshare (they have a codeshare with JAL)

They also have codeshare agreements with Singapore Airlines, United, Lufthansa, and British Airways

Thanks for this topic, Ishrion! I am loving Vistara’s livery on the B789. It’s darn beautiful and I love flying the new feeling with Vistara.

Just going to drop this here, if any of you would like to see this livery in the game. Vote for it!

Not Key West 😱 There are other destinations which I think Vistara could focus on.

LMAO I wasn’t expecting anyone to see that. It was a joke because when I posted that there were already three other comments saying DEL-BOM

Hahaha…

And there goes my likes limit again :(

If DEL-EYW can be a thing, let’s get DEL-SJC 😃

If it were BLR-SJC, that would’ve been killer.
