    There is definitely a problem with the pressurisation settings of on Air India Express! My mother, who is an experienced flyer, was facing issues of breathlessness on a recent flight we did! She was given oxygen, but the point is - why is it only Air India Express that she experiences this issue???

    Air India has always have problems for some reason or the other. I used to travel by Air India many times from New York to Mumbai but I did not have any issues but one or two times, flight was cancelled and I missed two important functions, which I missed. One was, I missed a funeral of my wife's sister. Since that time, I have stopped travelling by our national carrier, AIR INDIA.

    I was traveling from Mumbai to New York by AI via New Delhi.
    At New Delhi the new pilot reported drunk & all of us were put up in a 5 star hotel in New Delhi.
    I checked with the Hotel Manager & he told me such things happen at least 3 times a week.
    How can AI ever think of making money in these circumstances ...

    One of AI bigwigs probably owned the 5 stat hotel; nice way to ensure room occupancy by captains reporting drunk 3 times a week.

    AI lost it long long ago; taxpayers money well spent to keep the white elephant and all the rogue maharajas flying.
