Last year Jet Airways decided to allow Indians to enjoy lovely wide body aircraft on domestic network. Any avgeek in their salt would want to jump the opportunity without flashing passport. Sometimes they are available for really cheap prices.
I went ahead and tried 2 of the products. You can read the review of Airbus A332 here and A333 here. Well, they now have Boeing 777 also available on a domestic route. Which of this product you might get depends on your luck. I am definitely going to review 777 product within next few months.
Last year in June they started evening service on 9w362 at 1745 from Delhi to Mumbai. There was return flight in the late evening 9w361 at 2030 from Mumbai to Delhi. Now that has been updated. Instead of late night service, Jet Airways has added morning service for flight 9w 346 at 0730. Usually, you would either get Boeing 777 or Airbus 333 on this route now.
9w346 Mumbai (BOM) to Delhi (Del) 0730 0940
9w362 Delhi (Delhi) to Mumbai (BOM) 1745 1950
Later, in September, Jet Airways announced that they are adding 2 more routes for widebody aircraft. They added Mumbai-Chennai service and Delhi-Kolkata service.
On 26 March 2017, the flight routes have been updated.
9w414 Mumbai (BOM) to Chennai (MAA) 0835 1035 (Till 26th March 2017)
Jet Airways have updated the flight to:-
9w465 Mumbai (BOM) to Chennai (MAA) 0705 0905
9w429 Chennai (MAA)) to Mumbai (BOM) 1545 1740 (Would remain the same)
Well, for Delhi- Kolkata, they were running
9w907 Delhi (DEL) to Kolkata (CCU)
9w946 Kolkata (CCU) to Delhi (DEL)
Well, sadly for Kolkata customers, sadly they will no longer have wide-body aircraft heading to their city on a Domestic route. Jet Airways has shifted that on Mumbai- Bangalore network. Lately, Jet Airways is increasing their flight frequencies from Bangalore (Bengaluru). They have added more international flights at Bangalore. They have a direct flight from Bangalore to Colombo, Singapore, Abu Dhabi and might soon add Hong Kong soon.
For people who want to try on Mumbai – Bangalore network.
9w397 Mumbai (BOM) to Bangalore (BLR) 0825 1015
9w416 Bangalore (BLR) to Mumbai (BOM) 1700 1840
For all the aviation lovers in India, this is lovely opportunity to try out flat bed or even reverse herringbone product. This is the perfect flight for you to use your upgrades. I feel even food tends to be better on this flight. You don’t get famous old roll/wrap of Jet Airways. I actually felt like investigation officer who was trying to find a missing plane till I figured entire thing out.
