I'm surprised there hasn't been a thread on this as yet.
To cut a long story short, members of the Airine Coporation Employees Union (ACEU) the largest union at Indian (IC) went on a flash strike yesterday. The Civil Aviation Ministry and the Delhi High Court have declared the strike illegal. Only 40 flights were cancelled yesterday (out of 300 plus) but with cabin crew joining ground staff and engineering staff on strike, the impact could be worse today. Other airlines are virtually running full and fares have shot up even on the low-cost carriers.
