Air India International Passengers Stuck Abroad

The ongoing Air India pilot strike that hit last week has had an unpleasant effect on those who have return tickets and are already in a foreign destination.  During the strike, Air India made last-minute flight cancellations to and from the US, UK, and Europe, which left many passengers stranded, passengers who then had to then reschedule their return bookings at a much higher fare, says D Sudhakara Reddy, national president, Air Passenger Association of India (APAI).

International air fares have increased by 10% in wake of the Air India Strikes.  Fortunately, Air India has inter-line agreements with a few foreign carriers so that they can accommodate some of the Air India passengers who need to return home.  Reddy says that if Air India endorses their tickets, these passengers will be able to travel back to India for free, but it will all depend on the availability of seats.    He also adds that despite the troubles, Air India is accepting new bookings, something they shouldn’t be doing at this time.
