Airplane Inspiration: Air India 787
In order to keep everyone’s spirits up while most of us are stuck at home, I decided to start a new photography campaign. Airplane Inspiration will be a series of photographs published that showcase an airline/aircraft/airplanes from my photo bank. I encourage you to comment with your own experience with the airline or aircraft. Please share your photos on Instagram and Twitter using the hashtag #airplaneinspiration. I will monitor the hashtag and comment on your photos. Let’s all reminisce about the better times in aviation. We will soon be back in the air, but for now, keep up that #airlineinspiration. Today’s Airplane Inspiration is the Air India 787.
Location: Tokyo Narita
I took this photo from the Qantas Business Class Lounge in Tokyo Narita. The aircraft had just arrived from its flight from Delhi. Tokyo Narita has a cool variety of airlines that visit the airport from all over the world. Tokyo’s more centric airport, Haneda, is starting to take away from Narita, as airlines prefer Haneda due to its closeness to the city. With major airlines moving their operations to Haneda, Narita will become less exciting as we move forward.
Air India is the flag carrier of the South Asian nation. The airline has been in a precarious financial situation for years now, currently under state ownership. Modi’s government (the leader of the parliamentary majority) has been looking to sell the airline, but they have been faced with an uphill battle. Tata Sons, owners of Vistara, and Singapore Airlines are likely to be the final suitors for the airline. The COVID19 crisis will likely lower the price of the sale, and probably put into question the assumption of all the debt.
Keep up the Inspiration:
If you want to share your photos of the Air India 787, or if you want to share your experience flying on the Air India 787, tag your photo on Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #airlineinspiration. This way, the AvGeek world will stay connected, inspired, and with their eyes on the skies. I flew on the Air India 787 a few years back, and here is my review.

I hope this new photo campaign brightens up your day. I know I have been struggling to be on the ground for so long without any clear end in sight. If you want any airline highlighted, feel free to drop the airline/aircraft in the comments. If I have a picture of that aircraft/airline, I will post the photo and a link to your social media too (if you want).
