• Air India leans on retired hostesses

    0

    NEW DELHI: In an unusual industry move, Air India is re-hiring its retired airhostesses, aged 58 to 60, as it grapples with a severe staff crunch. What’s more, the cash-strapped national carrier is reportedly paying them handsomely — matching their last drawn salary levels. Crew shortage has resulted in massive flight delays for Air India. Just last week, its Delhi-Sydney flight took off over eight hours late, grounding cricket fans travelling onwards to Adelaide to watch the epic India-Pakistan clash. The airline’s on-time performance fell to a dismal 52.1 percent at metro airports in January from 59.8 percent the previous month.
