    Pilot unions took it for granted as there were no competitors. Why are IAS officials being left out

    B4 Praful Patel became Aviation minister Debt of AI was Rs 4000 crores. When Patel left debt was 40.000 crores..so All Politicians have Looted AI..huge commissions in acquiring aircrafts..Worst Agreement with Union n now AI is burden on people. TATA must b given AI without liability n scrapping of All labour Agreement can bring AI leading pride of India..

    Air India was the pride of our country. Now ruined beyond repair by our politicians who don't see beyond their noses. Now looking wistfully at the sky where they once ruled like Maharajas of yore. Sad but true.
