After pushing the bids deadline so many times, Air India sale could be deferred again. That would be the second time in three years that the flag carrier would have received zero bids. #aviation  #india  @airindiain 

Whether the airline is sold or not, I just want to retire as a board member. Things one hears. #justsaying .

Close to twenty thousand jobs lost in Indian#aviation  this year. Not to forget the hundreds on leave without pay (and grumpy) as also many @jetairways  employees still without jobs. ✈

Airports Authority shares pictures of Tuticorin airport design and ongoing modernization : - Runway being widened, extended and strengthened. - New terminal planned in phases. - Upgraded airport will be ready by March 2023 costing around Rs 400 crore. #aviation  #india .

That this was a forward from an airline safety investigator is just coincidental 😎

Hear an aviation firm trying to hire for a senior role but no one saying yes. Quite a contrast since so many terminated and unable to get senior roles and then you hear this. Hope traffic reverses to normal levels soonest so things become better. ✈

Indians detained for begging. We should have brought them back as of yesterday. At least they can go back to their villages / towns and live freely here. @MEAIndia  @IndianEmbRiyadh  @DrSJaishankar  @myogiadityanath  @capt_amarinder  @NitishKumar

Can't believe how people are treating our airline crew. This @IndiGo6E  crew is nearly broken from being discriminated & taunted. When she is gone for her flight, her mother is even refused groceries in her society. Police is also not helping. @AmitShah  #coronavirus  #india .

Wow look who is talking. Air India was profit making till it was forced with 111 planes it didnt ask for, loaded with debt, then merged leading to internal infighting while pvt airlines soared. ???

Only fair to place on record @IndiGo6E  Captain Rohit Mateti's version of the @kunalkamra88  / Arnab episode. Here goes his internal email :

Eagle has landed. Rome evac of 263 stranded Indians. AI-1122 ✈ 👏👏👏.
