Thiruvananthapuram: The family of the Kerala woman, whose attempts to visit her husband in Oman before his death was disrupted after the cancellation of flights by the Air India Express last week, is planning to move legally demanding action against the airline.

Nambi Rajesh, 40, who was under treatment for cardiac ailments in Oman, died on Monday. His wife Amritha had booked a ticket in an AIE flight from Thiruvananthapuram to Oman on May 8, but upon reaching the airport, she was told that the flight was cancelled owing to the flash strike by the airline employees.

After much persuasion and protest by the family, the airline issued a fresh ticket for the next day on the same airline. This ticket was also cancelled due to the stir, forcing Amritha to drop her travel plans. On Monday, Rajesh was found dead in his room.

The family accused the airline of denying an opportunity for Rajesh's wife to meet him and take care of him and has said that they will sue the airline over the issues.

Air India Express had cancelled "scores of flights" last week due to a shortage of cabin crew members as a section of them reported sick to protest against alleged mismanagement at the Tata Group-owned airline.

Discontent has been brewing among a section of the cabin crew at the low-cost carrier for some time now, especially after the start of the process of merger of AIX Connect, formerly AirAsia India, with itself.
