An airline which was considered as the airline of the nation is now in a pathetic situation with huge number of problems. The airline is none other than Air India. Right from the day when Indian airlines and Air India merger happened, there are mounting losses in the balance sheet of Air India which is troubling the government. With the financial crisis worsens currently, as Air India pilots are staying away from their job and protesting against multiple issues they have with the Air India management. It is said that those pilots who are in strike now will be shown the doors out of Air India. Official sources said that Air India will hire new pilots and they are planning to send official suspension order in a week. Government of India planning to operate new routes for Air India and also government is planning to infuse Rs.30000 crore to ensure that the airline keeps flying. Many experts feel that government did not operate flight services in gaining routes which led Air India to this collapse. Many feel that instead of wasting tax payer’s money, Air India can be shut down. I still remember the day in which Air India was the Maharaja of flight services in India, but now the situation seems to be pathetic.
