    Earlier consecutive Govts. messed up everything. It's good that it has returned to TATAs by this Govt. . Many fools , who believe in getting salary without working instigated by leftists and oppsition, are against this move but doesn't matter.

    If they are paid the pending payments from none other than the Govt itself probably they will have a chance to recover. Use services, abuse services and escape without settling accounts thereby sinking all organizations beyond recovery.

    It gave platform to Airhostess Margaret pohrmen from Shillong to globel flesh trade . Finally caught in action with a male crew in the toilet of a London return flight!! No wonder such crews also contributed to devastate its fame.
