Top Air India officials enjoying lavish perks amid 'austerity': Pilots

New Delhi: Air India pilots have told the management that while austerity measures are heaped on pilots, senior officials and management are enjoying lavish perks like free club memberships, scores of leased cars and hundreds of litres of free fuel every month and there has been no cutback.

In a letter to Rajiv Bansal, Air India, Chairman and Managing Director, the pilots associations said, "It is not only unprincipled for the senior officials to exclude their perks, eligibilities and entitlements from the austerity measures but also irrefutable proof that the intent of the management's cost cutting measures is to further the agenda of abusing employees under the guise of this epidemic".

In a letter today, the Indian Commercial Pilots Association and Indian Pilots Guild said for the past few months, it is being said that Air India's finances are in dire straits, there is no money coming in from the government and drastic cost-cutting is required else the airline will have to be shut down.

"However, this doomsaying seems to be reserved for pilots alone. Till date, the management is yet to come with a meaningful austerity measure that even dents the perks and privileges being enjoyed by the senior Air India officials", the letter said.
