He was Ashis Mitra.

Bandra-Colaba line will be extended to airport.

Mumbai does not needs an airport express as its airport is centrally located in the city. People come from all directions. On the other hand, Delhi airport is situated almost in corner, so there are many people coming from one direction (central Delhi and Dhaula Kuan).

Mumbai still needs airport express. Perhaps 2 lines forming an Y-shape (one straight and second meeting mid-way at airport) wherein the airport is located at the intersection of the "Y" and bottom of Y is towards south mumbai, would be able to cater well.

Why not an ordinary metro line ?

I remember reading that there would be an airport express line in the later phases. Also if and when new airport comes up at Navi Mumbai / Kalyan, it would be good idea to link up these two airports. It would serve as airport connectivity as well as cater to the suburbs in between.

I guess there needs to be integrated planning.

Because in a city like Mumbai the crowds are so dense that you can barely enter inside the train your own self forget the big luggage and suitcases. You need an airport line that has dedicated luggage racks and stops selectively at major stations in every locality so that you don't need a cab(and traffic jams) all the way to airport. It is the financial capital and deserves it every bit.

You are thinking only for the rich people, not for the ordinary folks. If airport express gets built from say South Mumbai to CSIA, then ordinary metro line will not be built parallel to it because of obvious reasons. Airport express will be used by only handful of people who want to visit airport, while ordinary metro line will be used by even those people who do not want to visit airport but say from Colaba to Mahalaxmi.

Airport express have many times more expensive tickets and are used by only a small fraction of people. For eg, Delhi's 23 km airport express will attract 20,000 people per day while an ordinary line with same length attract more than 2,00,000 people per day. We should not get sentimental with the fact that Mumbai is financial capital, so it should get an AE. Rather it should get what it actually needs. Show-off doesn't helps much. I would even prefer normal line for airport in Delhi than AE.

you dont need an express line to the current airport. normal metro will suffice since people with heavy luggage will still take cars/cabs as its not that expensive in india, even for students/backpackers

we may need one for the new airport to ensure that travel time is not too much
