Cabin Crew Protests Lead to Flight Cancellations and Delays at Air India Express

Air India Express has faced significant disruptions with more than 80 flights cancelled and numerous others delayed due to a reported sick-out by a section of cabin crew members protesting alleged mismanagement at the Tata Group-owned airline. Amidst the ongoing merger process with AIX Connect, formerly AirAsia India, the airline has been grappling with discontent among cabin crew members, leading to a shortage in staffing and operational challenges.

The protest has resulted in chaos at various airports, including Kochi, Calicut, and Bangalore, with sudden flight cancellations causing inconvenience to passengers, including those traveling overseas. The airline spokesperson expressed regret for the disruptions and assured passengers of efforts to address the situation promptly, offering refunds or rescheduling options for affected travelers.

This incident follows recent complaints by the Air India Express Employees Union about mismanagement and unequal treatment of staff, highlighting growing concerns within the workforce.

 The disruption at Air India Express adds to recent aviation woes within the Tata Group, including pilot shortages at Vistara, prompting temporary capacity reductions. As passengers voice their grievances on social media, the airline urges affected travelers to verify flight statuses before heading to the airport, acknowledging the inconvenience caused.
