Audio Podcast: Air India on the skids

As per media reports, civil aviation minister Mr. Praful Patel announced in Chennai yesterday, there would be no job cuts despite the hugely over-bloated workforce at Air India.

This is precisely the political meddling and easy options approach that I had warned about in my earlier article.

Mr. Patel, if you are unable to help Air India management, at least please step out of the way and not hinder their efforts.

I have recorded an audio postcast with Addison Schonland of Innovation Analysis Group (IAG) on the state of Air India. Please give it a listen and do post your views via a comment.
