Air India Pilots Strike Enters Sixth Day

Air India pilots are not budging from their position and their strike has now entered its sixth day, causing the cancellation of 20 international flights.  This has, in turn, inconvenienced hundreds of passengers, who have been stranded and who allege that the airline has not issued any refunds for those whose flights were cancelled.  More than 200 IPG pilots have been on strike since Tuesday and the airline has now suspended bookings for international flights through May 15.

So far the airline has fired 71 pilots and is seeking the cancellation of the flying licenses of 11 others who are office-bearers of the Indian Pilots’ Guild (IPG), which is the organization that is at the root of the strikes.  Union civil aviation minister Ajit Singh has asked the pilots to consider the passengers.  He also said they are ready to negotiate if the pilots call off the strike.  However, the first priority is ensuring the passengers are being taken care of.
