As almost half of Air Indias 1,600 pilots continued their strike on Sunday for the fifth day, almost 90% of their domestic flights were cancelled, while it reported normal operations in the international sector.
According to an official, the airlines management sent an SMS appeal to the striking pilots to come back to the negotiating table.
"An appeal was sent to the employees and especially to the ones of ICPA (Indian Commercial Pilots Association) via SMS stating that the airline is a very critical juncture, financially as well as morally and that to reinstate the glory of the national carrier we all should come to the table and start a dialogue," he said.
