No one can reform it (says decades of history) and the unions don't want to give back (says the unions) and the government wouldn't let you make the necessary changes (says the government every time someone tries to make big changes).
To think you can make domestic Air India healthy you must also think you are going to do a better job that all the other reformers that have come and failed before you, and that you can overcome all the obstacles that they could not.
Do you have any evidence to support this claim, other than unfettered support on a.net.
the fact that the Indian government operates it is enough evidence.
My question is specific to the claim "Air India domestic is a financial black hole. It's a disaster. It's toxic."
That is a typical AI(International) Mumbaikar's rant and diversion technique and to spread the s$%t around.
AI (Domestic) operating same aircraft type (A320) since 1989.
Same support infrastructure, same training facilities, same logistics.
The A320 crew is trained in-house in India, no need to spend $Millions like 787 crew, by sending them to Singapore or here.
Last time it purchased planes was in 2006
Still has the same number of planes around 66, most of them are leased, newer 19 are even PBTH.
Again, That is a typical AI(International) Mumbaikar's rant and diversion technique and to spread the s$%t around, to other units.
