    The laziest airline staff in the world. Instead of being pride of the nation, it brings more disgrace and is a liability for tax payers.

    GD, Udupi,
    I fully agree with you. This time it is flight delays due to Air India transport workers' strike. What about delays at all the times due to flimsy reason. It is high time our national airline, AIR INDIA, close down for good and give a chance to some to run it.
