Re: Air India grounds nearly 25% of 788 fleet due to flight crew shortages and the need of spare parts

Air India is a big baby that keeps trying to walk without knowing how to crawl. There is no way they will ever be profitable. Appalling any way one looks at it considering India's per capita income.
