Civil Aviation Minister Praful Patel is looking forward to meet the Air India Staff Unions including the pilots to completely discuss about the rationalization of the incentives and allowances in line with the airlines turn around plans been going on.  Sources say that there is a meeting which is gonna be scheduled soon to discuss the various problems within all the departments.

This meeting is been raised due to the major backdrop of the 5 day long stir by the Executive pilots after the management suggested to cut pays upto 50 percent in their PLI ( Productivity Linked Incentives) and the flying allowances.

The proposal was deferred after the employees including pilots and engineers, vehemently opposed any cut, maintaining that the staffs are completely not responsible for the mounting AI losses. There are 14 unions in the state-run airline representing engineers, pilots, cabin crew, officers and other employees.
