Surprised to hear the police did not take any action, but instead stood outside their rooms for a few hours!

Getting into a fistfight is incredibly unprofessional behavior.

The Indian media is notoriously unreliable - take everything you read in it with a boatload of salt. The police bit doesn't make much sense at all.

What is it with that hotel and AI? The report says there was another altercation at the same hotel sometime back.

Why would the hotel request the police not to make any arrests? Since when did the cops start making decisions based on recommendations? I do not believe that part of the story.

Shame on the AI flight attendants.

Not good if the reports are accurate. Especially since by working for a country's national carrier, you are pretty much an ambassador for your nation. Many people forget that

Wow, I was just about to post this article. Crazy stuff, wonder if it was over a girl or something.

I'd like to see a more reliable source. Did any of the newspapers reporting this actually contact the local police to get their side of the story?

Maybe the bar on the ground floor?

They should fire them on the spot and make them pay for the hotel and plane ticket home.

I would take that whole article with a generous pinch of salt. Not the best behaviour but the daily fairytale in the uk is always publishing such things!!

Why is this being reported by a source in India and not in Chicago? The whole story sounds off if you ask me and I am not defending Air India in any way, can't stand them. The whole thing about the hotel asking the cops not to charge them shows how off the article is.

This whole story sounds completely unbelievable I live in Chicago and this incident was never reported on any local new station, in any local new paper or on any blog here in Chicago. So how did someone in India get the story when no media outlet here in Chicago did and all the media outlets here in Chicago have police scanners? An incident involving international flight attendants that required police and paramedics to respond would have made the news somewhere here in Chicago.

And secondly correct me if I'm wrong but Chicago police do not have the authority to ban anyone from entering the United States as the article seems to suggest only the federal government can do that and that would require a police report and the article said that the hotel clearly asked that a report not be file.

The article is false.

This just sounds like a half baked report that tries to show AI in a negative light. I won't be surprised if some years down the road we find out it was Etihad or Emirates manipulating the press to make AI look bad.

Anyways time to sit back and watch the AI hatred mongers carry their hatred to another art form!

Google gives me nothing. Although it seems many are doing the exact same search "Air India Cabin crew" one of the suggestion is fight. I guess that 2009 report makes it still fresh

Most of the police departments in US cities publish detailed weekly reports listing all incidents they responded to, whether or not the incident resulted in a criminal complaint. With all the budget cuts they want to show citizens they are busy. May be someone Chicago area can check. This is definitely a bogus article. My guess this a tip from a AI Mumbai employee to TOI on Delhi crew.

Don't bite the hand that feeds you, is my guess.

Air India is guaranteed business.
