AI pilots fly under protest, serve legal notice

Air India pilots seem to be heading for yet another showdown with the management by flying “under protest” over the recent changes in their flight duty hours which they slammed as “arbitrary and illegal”.

“The AI management has issued a new route pattern effective September 16, which the ICPA feels is in violation of their bilateral agreements,” the Indian Commercial Pilots’ Association (ICPA), a union of erstwhile Indian Airlines pilot with over 600 members, said in a statement.

A letter notifying that the flights were being operated by ICPA members “under protest and without prejudice to their rights” has been issued to GM operations (In-charge Airbus Fleet).
