    I blame workers who behave as govt clerks rather than world class crew.... Delay no announcement, flight cancelled no infomration , not on time - not bothered,.... When staff can unite for salary why don't they unite to give good service.... Free kick naukri chahiye, then kam karney ki zarurat kya hai
