    This is not something new to our national air carrier AIR INDIA. Our government should ban this airlines as soon as possible. Now they are allotted some money to run the airlines they will still show losses with the corrupt management.

    Now a days it is not advisable to travel in Air India flights. Especially Gulf sector one. First of all flights are not on time. ... Once i had a experience of emergecy landing while on my way back to Manglaore. Arrogant nature of crew members really frustating passangers. .....But when we travel in quality flights like JetAiways via mumbai our journey becomes memorable one by the hospitality of Crew members.

    Please do not take risk on life. Board the quality flights. Even if you pay more, that will pay off. Do not take risk on life. There are several quality flight but bit expensive... instead of sevearl vacations reduce the number or travel off season. I know it is hard but Air India does not do any good to any one. Jai Ho National Carrier...
