AI curtails flights

Mumbai, June 27

Air India has cancelled or temporarily withdrawn as many as 12 flights from its domestic and international network, which include services to Kabul and Kuala Lumpur, due to shortage of cabin crew.

The now derecognised Air Corporation Employees Union (ACEU) had in March threatened to strike work, demanding recruitment of cabin crew in view of the manpower crunch.

"The airline has withdrawn as many as 12 flights across its network due to persistent constraint of cabin crew," airline sources said here.

Manpower crunch was hitting flights operation badly, they said.
