The COVID-19 pandemic's effects have created numerous obstacles for the world's aviation industry during the past two years. The sole goal of airlines was to survive.
Airlines left no stone unturned to cut costs as much as possible, even at the expense of staff costs. This was true for airlines in India as well.
However, after more than two years of lower pay and increased hardships, the anger among employees at different airlines is beginning to surface. That is exactly what happened at IndiGo over the previous weekend.
On July 2, passengers' concerns flooded IndiGo's Twitter timeline. Given the size of the enormous carrier's network, when one IndiGo flight sneezes, the entire network becomes sick.
Sources claim that a significant percentage of the cabin crew engaged in an Air India recruitment campaign while on sick leave.
On the same day as the delay, Air India, which is owned by the Tata group, began its cabin staff hiring campaign.
The crew's "mass bunk" amused online users, who made fun of them for missing work to attend the placement drive.
