Spooked by 'haunted' hotel, Air India crew asks airline to change accommodation

New Delhi: The high-flying lifestyle of working for an airline always seems glamorous. However, the experiences of an Air India crew assigned to fly to Chicago in the US will probably make those considering a career in the airline industry think twice.
The crew, which was put up at a hotel in Chicago, has had to deal with "negative energies" while in their rooms, according to a report by news agency ANI. So spooked has the crew been after facing "paranormal activities" at the hotel that they have written to Air India management, asking the national carrier to take immediate action.
The crew's deputy chief of cabin has written a letter, accessed by news agency ANI, complaining that the nerve-wracking experience at the Chicago hotel has left most of the crew members "scared (of) sleeping alone". The letter, however, does not specify the exact nature of the paranormal activities.
The spooky goings-on at the Chicago hotel keep "playing in our mind (sic)", the deputy chief writes in the letter and as a result of this, the crew is unable to get proper rest after operating ultra-long haul flights.
The letter goes on to question the Air India management's decision to sign a contract with the hotel despite there being several online accounts of the paranormal activities at the hotel.
The crew member asks Air India officials to look into the matter and "change this hotel on (an) urgent basis" while saying that such incidents have been happening since November last year. The deputy chief of cabin also expresses his/her unwillingness to fly on the Chicago route until the hotel is changed.
