Hey

I was watching NDTV the other day and there was part of the programme that was dedicated to this issue...

Ive got the URL:

http://www.ndtv.com/morenews/showmor...frmsrch=1&txtsrch=Air+India+Pilots

So what are your views on this?
Do you actually beleive that they are overworked??

OR

Are the management just making optimal usage of pilots due to the recent expansion??

Cheers

I was just about to post this on the Indian aviation thread!

With Air India Pilots - I would take anything with a pinch of salt.

I don't think the country can easily forget the recent Sars episode - where the pilots acted very irresponsibly.

I've never flown AI but a couple of days ago, I saw some really hot AI F/A's @ JFK walking and I was like...damn, I got fly AI one of these days. Maybe it was one of those 'Good from far, far from good' cases or I just saw a couple hot ones.
