Although the Indian Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) had requested Air India to maintain crew strength of 16 of its US-bound flights, the airline is alleged to be in violation of that order. Cabin crew have claimed the airline continues to operate many of its long-haul international flights with less than 16 flight attendants – in some cases with only 10 or 12 per flight, said one anonymous employee to local media. According to the source, the DGCA is aware of the violation but has failed to act. AI did not comment on the news.
