Air India Pilots Protesting for Performance Related Bonuses

It is no more a secret that India’s aviation industry has been badly hit by the world economic recession. Airline companies are finding it difficult to continue their business in the heat of economic turmoil. Because of economic recession number of tourists in the country has been decreased significantly over the last one or two years. Naturally, air line companies are struggling to cut costs. As part of their attempt to cut costs, Air India has recently decided to abandon the performance related bonuses of the pilots.

Air India pilots are now protesting against it. As a result, many flights have been interrupted. A large number of passengers are facing huge problems because of the strike of the pilots. Air India management tried to resolve the matter with the pilots by holding conversation, but nothing fruitful has come out yet.
