Riches to Rags: The Story of Air India

It was once the pride of the country and the model for many Asian airlines. Today, it's the butt of countless jokes. This is the rise and fall of India's public airline.

    Nehru& indira we're socailsts nationalised banks & good private companies like air india result now is most of the public banks have NPAS ( bad debts likes of nirav& vijay malya, mehul) most of nationalised got bankrupted. Result lakhs of dollars of public money wasted, instead of benfiting!

    The way you are showing it now...it's like all air India flights crash.... By the way you forget that this is the only airline that comes to everyones rescue when they are stuck abroad, then I forget that you are Brut...you have hard time liking anything India...

    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.

I remember once I was traveling and in mid flight I asked one of the hostess for some water bottle.... she shouted on me literally I am surprised why did she do that I am just asking water .... Although latter I did what I have to .... but after that I never travelled with air india . Indigo even go air is more professional than this mother fucker air india staff .... Behan choodh aise hilati hui si aati .... although I wish ke air india will grow as it's my country airline but I wish iskain staff ko complete private karna chahiyee....

    Because of bad management, over staffing, unionism, and last but not the least stupid political intervention

    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.

    With its great service, history and reputation, it's struggling to stay afloat..? Wondering how small nations like Nigeria, Sri Lanka (Air Lanka) are running their airline business successfully and we the world's (so called) greatest democracy are struggling to survive in the industry? Deliberate reasons behind it.
