It is pity to say & hear about story of AI National Career. When we travel in AI people will think its cheap/low fare ticket. But reality is Fare is higher than other private career like Jetairways, KW Airway, Emirates. Peoples dont have any other option thats only reason to travel in India. When India Govt allow othere private airlines to opearte ????

I have changed my mind
I will not do hunger strike against AI
reason being, its AI that takes us directly to our destination i.e. Kuwait or Mlore
We have prayed for a direct flight for years and finally we have got a direct flight
Imagine those days when we used to travel with family via Dubai and stay over night in the airport or hotel...
Let us only pray that the AI uses better flights
Yes i can consider fasting for AI to get better flights!!

what are your views???

FIRST OF ALL THANKS TO THE PIOLET, Who reported the technical fault,, The mangalore incident Rs 25 lakh is not even paid and is still under negogiation, The person who is holding a negogiation , should make his family travel in the same plane .I heard the news tht 25 lakhs is not even paid, the authorities who is holding the money , ONE SHOULD GO AND GIVE A TIGHT SLAP ON HIS F. Face. And make is family travel in a plane tht can face similar . sad ppl , let them atleast get wht is for them, bread earners in a family has deied on tht incident , Wht the hec the government is doing for these ppl,, All they know is when election comes , catch a gandhiji flag and walk / beg for votes,, why do we need to vote for these sort of ppl.
When i was at college i was a complete supporter for congress,, Now i dont bother to vote , bcoz i feel , they are helpless when it comes to needs, untill elections the price of petrol was controled , after that they when on increasing it ,,, wht a technique... any way ,, all i can do is pray for the ppl .. thts all and honestly i will take the least option of Choossing Air india / indian airlines.

Dear Passangers,

Try to understand its not the issue of flights, the main issue is from the Air India MGMT, until unless the mgmt change there wont be any improvements on flights operations. Hope you all may know the staff of Airindia is highly paid and as per my knowledge In Airline Industry Airindia is one of the best Payer worldwide. Need some good mentality people who really want to bring up that airline from crisis.. My suggestion is to give this airline operations to TATA. which India will never do as they know some priviate airlines will be in trouble.
Accident / snag can happen to any airline.. Our duty is to pray to GOD for a safe journey till we reach destination.

Dear friends,

It is true that AI is not upto our expectations & as passengers we have every right to criticise abt its operations. But we shouldn't forget that some of the Airlines operating to the Indian sectors, are not better than AI, including KU.

Why are we not raising such comments against KU, when their flights were frequently delayed/ cancelled in the recent past and many cnfrmd ticket holders were not allowed to board the flights? How many KU flights had developed tech snags on/ off air, disrupting its schedules?

(Let us not forget that when we were in trouble, stranded at Amman airport in 1990, there was this AI / IA who came to our rescue).

Yet, these are no justifications for AI's poor performance, but let us be little more pragmatic in our criticism.

Air India helps to make people more religious& god feraring.From the day you purchase the ticket,till u reach the destination safely u have to pray earnestly.Here the problem is not time delay or job loss,but the life itself is on the balance.

God is great, he saved a lot b'se Mangloor victims are begging still infront of Air india for thier rights. If no one is responsible to handle the airways let them close and sit in a laundary. We are expecting a lot from Mr. Yusafali.
