12 Indian' A-320 planes grounded

New Delhi: As many as 12 A-320 aircrafts of state-owned carrier Indian are grounded for major maintenance or want of engines, the Lok Sabha was informed on Thursday.
"The exact loss of revenue is difficult to compute as different aircrafts are under scheduled maintenance or otherwise for different periods of time," Civil Aviation Minister Praful Patel said in reply to a question.
He said normally about six A-320s remain grounded for maintenance, but currently there were 12 aircrafts. The reasons for delay in repairs were not due to shortage of spare parts but for major maintenance, want of engines or scheduled maintenance checks.
