Why so big fuss over free tickets?

I think AI's demands are too harsh (just like it happens many a time when union comes into picture). Its is true that many airlines give extraordinary benefits but not to step-children and grand children.

I guess, as a flag bearer, one cant easily privatize.

Unions have always screwed the companies everywhere. Look at what Unions did to General Motors and rest of the Detroit big automakers.

Unions screwed Mumbai textile mills and workers were finally turned into jobless beggars. Mills moved to neighbouring Gujarat. Now the same mill compounds have huge towers and malls where the offspring of the mill workers might be luck if they got a job. Such is the sad state of affairs when it comes to unions.

Re: Air India pilots strike costing dear

Here's another strike by one AI pilot...

Quote:
Pilot refuses to fly without favourite female co-pilot

Around 110 passengers had to wait in a grounded Air India aircraft for nearly two-and-a-half hours after its commander refused to take off without his favourite female co-pilot.

The passengers were travelling on the Air India flight from Chennai to Male via Thiruvananthapuram. The ensuing delay resulted in the flight departing at 9.13 a.m. instead of the scheduled time of 7 a.m.

According to reports, the Air India commander in question had resigned last week and was serving his notice period. On Tuesday, he asked for the woman officer to fly with him on the same flight. However, when the request was denied by the airlines, the official threatened to report sick.

When he appeared for duty on Wednesday, he refused to fly until he was accompanied by the female co-pilot in question. In the end, the airlines was forced to arrange for the co-pilot.
