Indians in Bahrain push for cheaper flights

Indian associations and clubs in Bahrain are being urged to join forces to push for cheaper flights home.
The rallying call has come from members of the Bahrain Malayalee Business Forum, which says the current rates of Air India and Indian are too high.
They are threatening to organise a boycott of both airlines and are encouraging other associations to join them unless prices are slashed.
"The fares of all the other carriers who have flights to India depend on that of Air India and Indian.
Air India Express is a low-cost carrier that was originally scheduled to start services to the Gulf in April. However, it was postponed until October because it did not have enough planes to operate the service.
