Losses cross Rs 100-cr mark

The strike by Air India pilots entered into its 8th day today, with losses incurred crossing the Rs 100 crore mark.

"We apologise for the inconvenience caused to the general public because of our industrial action in Air India, but it is of extreme importance for the people to understand the circumstances under which the pilots have been forced to take this drastic step.
