New Delhi: There has still been no end to Air India's troubles. It's been a week since its pilots went on a strike that has so far cost the already debt-ridden national carrier almost Rs 96 crore so far.
The Maharaja's contingency plan was supposed to take effect on Monday but now sources say that it hasn't even been finalised as yet. That is because Air India's Executive Pilots Association (EPA) has announced its support for the agitators.
They are currently responsible for operating the international flights. Not just the EPA, the Jet Airways pilot body SWIP has also called for the reinstatement of the sacked Air India pilots.
On the ground, the fliers continued to suffer as eight international and six domestic flights were cancelled on Monday morning.
