I blame Civil Aviation Minister Praful Patel for this bail out condition. After he got his daughter married to Vijay Mallay's son , Air India's profit making routes were either removed or replaced with smaller aircraft to give benefit to Kingfisher air lines. Key management changes were made who instead of working in the interest of Air-India favored for other Airlines. Before Government makes a decision to bail out Air India, it should be de-linked from Indian Air lines and Praful Patel should be removed and actions taken by his ministry post marriage of his daughter to Vijay Mallya's son needs to be investigated by CBI.

Absolutely. Air-India is well past its sell-by date. "National" airlines have no place in today's air transport industry.

(In the 1960s the huge upfront investment required govt. intervention - plus there was the matter of "national" prestige!)

Netas will spend any amount of public money to keep AI afloat. It serves so many purposes for them like lucrative commision from contrarcts and purchases, employment opportunities for sychophants, a personal airline for flying around, playground for union and caste politics, etc

Absolutely impractical and hypothetic idea. this mess of air india has been created by the great man prafull patel and has to be sorted by his ministry only.

Their total worth may come to 1000 crores. But they placed order for 111 latest aircrafts costing about 40000 crores. 45 of them have been delivered rest pending. That exactly is the problem. Who ordered so many crafts beyond its capacity to buy and why? There is no othergo now. So Government have reasons to bail out as the order might have been placed with their approval in their previous term.

Yes you are absolutely right sir. but govt is not paying any attention to it. Netas are buzy making their statutes worth 2000 crores how they will find time for all such things. Plus our aviation minister is doing nothing to improve air india ......

I think those who knows about civil aviation industry should comment on this .As there are numerous areas which a common man never comes to know about them . And what Mr Iqbal Seth and Jack sir have said are a few known debacles created by the authorities .
