I do not go into Air India bashing at all It is unfair to say this — Ashok Gajapathi Raju Union Civil Aviation minister Air India was in the seventies the trendsetter for the world I recall the pride in the Maharajah and the brilliance of the Bobby Kooka ad campaigns that reflected India’s finest ambassador For four decades and past an endless stream of managing directors each with his own agenda the Maharajah was defrocked and disgraced Like a frog on a lily pad waiting to be kissed and saved from the evil spell cast upon him Begging for it Run by proxy from the out-offices of the Ministry of Civil Aviation by a slew of ministers and their minions Air India turned from that proud ambassador in the sky to a punch bag for all and sundry Representational image AP By these machinations of the nation’s leaders and the emotional blackmail of her passengers Air India has been frequently diverted from its main aim of providing a service and making a profit That said enough of the mudslinging and the whipping Air India’s current efforts to make a comeback need to be lauded If it has turned into the black this year for the first time in ten years — as the Civil Aviation minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju told Parliament on Tuesday — it’s no small feat The conditioned contempt must stop In brief these are the four aspects that demand attention Indian passengers treat Air India like an outhouse While they will sit like quiet mice on a foreign airline whining and whinging about Air India comes with the territory and they are all tigers Ergo the image of a bad airline survives Indian politicians and bureaucrats treat Air India like it was their private taxi Delaying flights for their excellencies is common and regularly reported not that anyone cares This ridiculous idea that government servants must be upgraded allowed to break the rules and bring on heavy luggage into the cabin has to be removed It is not their private fiefdom The third point is about the weak and febrile unions who have lost the plot The Indian Pilots Guild which was once a gutsy boxer is now just a label While the world’s aviation empowers its crew to a fault in India they are subservient to big bosses and political so-called VIPs The old concerns of not being backed if there is a complaint survive and thrive The final nail is that of image Air India is seen as a stodgy full dreary aunt wearing sensible shoes There is no glamour no excitement no innovation As a result the pick-up is slow It needs a Bobby Kooka It is still widely believed that on-time performance is impossible in Air India Which is why we hear top executives Indian sports teams official delegations moaning at the idea of flying Air India Despite all this crap thrown at the Maharajah his staff soldier on Here are five factors you need not believe but are true Air India crew are still the warmest and friendliest people in modern aviation often victims of Airport ineptitude for which they have to answer uncharitably If there is no wheel chair it is not their purview but blame the airline Air India flight deck crew are the finest pilots and that is why after the Emperor Ashoka and Kanishka tragic crashes we have a good safety record skewed a bit by the Mangalore crash of 2010 By that token when we had half dead planes engineering kept them flying and that is a tribute to their expertise For a nation fascinated by food Air India inflight catering is way ahead of the rubber chicken offered by other carriers But we love to complain because we can And silently eat rubbish on other carriers abroad and at home Air India passengers are demanding often insufferable because they all know someone and the airline is often co-opted to conduct non-revenue making exercises From extra baggage weight to upgrading seats for anyone and his uncle to all kinds of favours AI passengers have taken the cake Add to this the service protocol The airline has been chewed upon and spat out by political expediency a line of ignorant bureaucrat chief executives a freeze on professional in-house promotions lack of route planning a suspension on the yield factor and an arbitrary invasion of its commercial dictate Let me elaborate Whether it is offering expat Indian children free rides home for excellence in studies or sponsoring Indian cultural activities and festivals Air India is a sort of friendly under-the-gun inductee who gets it severely in the neck if it does not respond in accepted fashion to crises of all kinds including freeloaders with contacts So whether it is agreeing to transport the bodies of dead expats for free or explaining why fares to the southern cities cannot be reduced to forking out freebies for India’s secular festival entertainments fairs and exhibitions flying MPs on jaunts and inaugurals or ‘fact-finding’ sprees blocking three Jumbo widebodies for a VIP flight and thirty-odd other such ridiculous commands Air India’s social role competes directly with its professional one And wins Check the unpaid bills of our leaders and their delegations It runs into crores If Air India despite all this extra weight is again flying high then we should salaam

Britain’s Prime Minister Theresa May Top News Theresa May hopes to break the Brexit talks deadlock on Monday with a new offer on divorce settlements at a crunch meeting with EU officials as some of her party members urge her to walk away unless there is progress EU officials and diplomats say they are increasingly optimistic a deal can be struck on Monday while cautioning that things could still go wrong Over lunch with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and European Union Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier the British prime minister will try to persuade them to start discussions on a new trade pact and a two-year transitional deal The European Union has given May until Monday to put forward a more comprehensive offer on the remaining separation issues before officials recommend moving onto discussing trade and future ties They want a pledge that Britain will pay what it owes the bloc when leaving protect the rights of EU citizens living in Britain and ensure there is no hard border between the north and south of Ireland The EU has said it will allow negotiations on the Britain’s future trade relations with the EU to begin only when there has been sufficient progress on these separation issues Nadine Dorries a member of Britain’s ruling Conservative Party who supports Brexit said May should tell EU officials time is running out to move talks on to the next phase The EU has had “enough time now to decide whether or not they are going to discuss trade with us they need to get on with it and if they don’t get on with it the closer we get to walking away with no deal” she said European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and his Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier will meet EU lawmakers early on Monday an EU official said on Sunday However EU officials and diplomats cautioned that it was still unclear that a deal would be struck with the British prime minister when she meets the EU executive May portrays Monday’s meeting as part of preparations for an EU summit on Dec 15 – though the EU says Monday is the last chance for her to make offers as there will be no negotiations at the summit itself A British spokesman said: “With

companies that do business in the EU If talks on Monday go well then EU leaders could give a green light to trade talks at their summit on Dec 14-15 More than 30 pro-Brexit supporters including members of parliament and former Conservative ministers have signed a letter calling on May to walk away from talks unless key conditions are met They include an end to free movement of people from the EU into Britain and for the European Court of Justice to have no further role in British legal matters after March 2019 With significant headway apparently made on the financial settlement and EU citizens’ rights a deal on the Irish border appears to be the main hurdle in the talks The almost invisible border between British-ruled Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic a key component of the 1998 Irish peace agreement was possible because both sides were in the EU and its single market Ireland has called on Britain to provide details of how it will ensure there is no “regulatory divergence” after Brexit in March 2019 that would require physical border controls But any solution will need the support of Northern Ireland’s pro-Brexit Democratic Unionist Party whose 10 members of parliament are propping up May’s government The Democratic Unionist Party has said it will not support any deal that leads to Northern Ireland operating under different rules from the rest of the
