‘Ashamed and sorry’: Netizens fume after Air India complains of staff being ostracised

Air India on Sunday called out “vigilante” Resident Welfare Associations for “ostracising” its crew members who had travelled to international destinations, including coronavirus-hit countries, and appealed to law enforcement agencies to ensure that they are treated with respect.

The national carrier said in a release that the RWAs and neighbours were obstructing its crew from turning up for duty and even calling the police on them.
They also underlined how the cabin crew members were supplied with hazmat suits, sanitisers and masks and have taken full precautions while performing their duties. Also highlighting how the crew were on mandatory “home quarantine” and underwent  hospital check-ups, the company urged all to respect the national carrier’s staff.

The complaint came on the same day people thanked emergency workers and others for their service, and on social media many were upset that the airline staff have faced harassment. Many apologised on behalf of those who have insulted the staff and thanked the airline for continuing to help Indians in distress.
