Air India Cancels 24 International Flights

As more than 300 Air India pilots continue their strike action into Monday morning, the airlines has been forced to cancel 24 flights for the day, mostly those heading overseas.  This is the eighth day that pilots have been boycotting work and an airline spokesperson has said that the airline and the union have come to a stalemate.  The aviation minister has said that he will only negotiate with the pilots if they return to work, something they are not willing to do.

The airline has been struggling to rebound from five years of incurring losses due to paying high wages, operating on routes that were not popular, ordering multi-billion dollar planes, and a dip in demand.  The airline also has a history of problems with its 31,000 employees, mostly unrest over wages and issues surrounding career progression.  The airline has a total of 1500 pilots, 450 of which operated flights to international destinations.  This past week has seen flight cancellations to Chicago, New York, Toronto, and Hong Kong.
