    Air India strikes enter day two (10 now,Ended)

    Hi
    Air India strikes enter day two

    New Delhi: There was no end to the sufferings of the passengers as strike by a section of Air India pilots entered the second day on Thursday.
    Approximately 53 flights, including three Dubai, Kabul and Kathmandu bound flights, were cancelled Thursday as nearly 700 pilots of the erstwhile Indian Airlines, which was merged with Air India in 2007, continued to defy the court ban on their strike and appeals by the authorities to resume work.
