Air India cancels two flights out of ChennaiApril 28th, 2011 - 1:18 pm ICT by IANS
Chennai, April 28 (IANS) The ongoing strike by around 600 pilots has forced Air India to cancel two flights out of here and combine its Thursday morning flight to Singapore with its afternoon flight, an official said.
According to an Air India spokesperson, the airline operated two flights to Delhi and one to Mumbai Thursday morning, while it cancelled its flights to Hyderabad and Port Blair.
“We will operate flights to Visakhapatnam and Bangalore,” he said.
The pilots of the Indian Commercial Pilots Association (ICPA), once on the payroll of erstwhile Indian Airlines, struck work Tuesday midnight demanding parity in pay with their counterparts in Air India and other issues related to work conditions.
They have since also demanded that the airline reinstate the six pilots who were sacked and two others who were suspended later Wednesday, and want the union to be recognised again and its offices de-sealed.
