Air India is increasing the number of seats on its route between Mumbai and London. In February and March 2020, the airline plans to increase its service between London (LHR) and Mumbai (BOM) from seven weekly flights to 10 weekly flights.

As reported by RoutesOnline, between 14 February and 13 March 2020, the airline will increase its service on the route to Mumbai. Each of the additional frequencies will be operated by one of the carrier’s Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner aircraft.

Air India’s 788 features a two-cabin configuration: business and economy. In business class, you can expect 18 lie-flat seats in a 2-2-2 configuration. Each of the seats features 74 inches of pitch and is 22 inches wide.

The additional frequencies are on top of the airline’s recently announced new route between London Stansted (STN) and Mumbai. That route will operate with three weekly frequencies beginning 20 February 2020.

In October 2019, Virgin Atlantic relaunched service between London Heathrow (LHR) and Mumbai. The airline’s daily schedule competes directly with Air India on the route. British Airways also offers at least two daily frequencies between the two airports.
