Punctuality of aircrafts

Who is able to give any information about the reliability of aircrafts especially for the companies Jet Airways and Kingfisher. Are the aircrafts of these companies on time ? We will visit India in August. Is it possible to take an aircraft from Mumbai to Frankfurt at 2.50 a.m., when we arrive the evening before at 8:o5 p.m. in Mumbai. Or is there a high risk of a long delay ?

Airline schedules depend on a lot of things and so are unpredicatble.

However, Jet and Kingfisher are known to be quite punctual. However, do expect a delay of around 1 hour even in normal circumstances. I think the time gap between 8.00 pm and 12.00 am is quite sufficient (you'll need to check-in around 2-1/2 hrs. before the scheduled departure time).

You will also need to change the terminals. The Mumbai International airport is about 1/2 hour away from the Domestic airport (in heavy traffic conditions).
