Couple of nights ago, no delay at 130 AM, number 2 behind a B744. Wx 700m with 2000 RVR. About 15 minutes delay outbound the next afternoon to BOM, I expected long linear holding (love that term) and rather surprised to find little delays. Usually evenings in BOM are a mess until midnight.

Not listening up on the radios does get a lecture from ATC, overheard, NOT me.

Delhi Airport

Delhi Airport has been the subject of many MOR s and I have talked to a senior ATC who admitted that the equipment and traiining were less than what was needed. Instead of improving the terminal and building a new runway they should invest in the infrastructure first.
GET THAT RIGHT and the rest will follow.
