Air India Faces Crisis as Aircraft Technicians Prepare for Strike

Air India is on the verge of facing a significant setback as its aircraft technicians gear up to go on strike. The move comes as a result of ongoing disputes over wages and other related issues. The strike, if executed, could potentially disrupt the airline's operations and lead to flight cancellations and delays, impacting thousands of passengers.

The Aircraft Maintenance Engineers' Association (AMEA), which represents a substantial number of technicians at Air India, has served notice to the management regarding the impending strike. The technicians are demanding timely payment of their salaries, which they claim have been delayed for several months. Additionally, they seek a revision in their wages, citing increased workloads and responsibilities.

This development adds to the already existing challenges faced by Air India, including financial troubles and operational inefficiencies. The national carrier has been struggling with a mounting debt burden and fierce competition from other airlines in the Indian market. Amidst such difficulties, a strike by its technicians could exacerbate the situation and further tarnish the airline's reputation.

Air India's management is reportedly in talks with the technicians' union in an attempt to resolve the issues and avert the strike. However, if an agreement is not reached soon, the airline may find itself grappling with a severe operational crisis, jeopardising its already precarious position in the aviation industry.
