Air India are to launch direct flights from Birmingham to India using the Dreamliner aircraft from August 1st.

Too late for us as we have already booked to fly with Qatar but will keep an eye on the prices for next year...

I am a black country wench and in the sixties worked on the Birmid Industries switchboard. There were 6,000 Indians who were mainly from the Punjab working there. Would not be surprised if the Air India flight will be to the Punjab.

Still good news anyway.

Why was that post removed when all I remembered was someone saying some joke about Birmingham?

From what I saw it says to Delhi but no problrm getting a flight down from there to Goa if Brum is close in the UK. I will stick with Jet though for the weight allowance.

Chain making and there was a big fall out with the black country which spills over even today.

I know of nothing else.
