This Jet Airways story makes it a lesson for the common man, again.It is nothing but, you suffer all the time.
Being a common man, I feel that I am always a victim of the strikes, price hikes, job cuts, salary cuts and what not…
Why cant the government take action against these pilots? Why are they supporting them or talk for them?
When I book a ticket to India, I prey three things.
1. I should get a ticket for the date and time I need ( weekends, which never happens). If I get a ticket to India on weekend from Kuwait, you have no chance for getting the ticket on a weekend from there back to kuwait
2. If I get the tickets, the flight shouldn’t get canceled. This happens mostly with Air India Express. Recently I have booked for a return ticket for my family from India to Kuwait on 28th September. One fine day, I got an email that the flight is canceled. Boom…. you find your own way, we are not flying that day…Man… dont you think that is crazy?
3. The crew is not on strike… Now pilots, we have seen this with not only Jet but also with Kuwait Airways… Air India is not an exception, but I am not yet a victim. Now after few days, another set of crew… may be air hostesses may go on strike. what do we do then? after that the turn would be of those who does the cleaning… goddddd… I don’t know how will I book any ticket without worrying all this.
Heard that the Management is taking back the pilots. This will lead to more strikes by this union for getting their benefits (as they call it).
