Wednesday 2 January saw AI306, the 1315 hours lunchtime DEL - MEL (B788 VT-ANN) taking off at 1433, so on Thursday 3 arrival is at 0804, 64 late. With AI309 not scheduled to depart until 1045, it should be on time, again showing the value of international airlines, where feasible with costs, slot availability and crew to schedule longer than minimum turnarounds.

It's not what many Australians might expect given the preconceived ideas we may have about India, but AI is often punctual to and from SYD and MEL.

However on Saturday 10 August with SYD down to one runway for most flights for much of the day thus far, AI301 (1045 hours SYD up to DEL) did not take off until 1351 hours. Arrival is expected at 2154, 199 late for B788 VT-ANZ.

Contrary to what one may perceive of this gornment-owned, financially troubled airline, AI is generally pretty good with its timekeeping between DEL - MEL and SYD and return. However on Friday 1 November 2019, the 1015 hours AI301 did not take off until 1102 hours from SYD so arrival should be at 1800 hours, 35 late.

AI309 on Thursday 21 November 2019 from MEL to DEL is the 1045 hours with B788 VT-ANZ. There were northerlies of up to 61kmh at MEL and single runway operations, so takeoff at 1140 means suggested arrival at 1833, 53 late.
