Pay flying allowances by February 10 or we won’t follow changes in duty roster: AI pilot unions


Pilot unions of Air India have written to the company asking that their flying allowances be paid by February 10 otherwise they will not accept any changes in the duty roster, which has already been issued for February. Flying allowance is paid to a pilot on the basis of the number of flight hours he or she has clocked in the month.

“If flying allowance is not paid by 10th of February 2019, we will not take any changes in roster and will maintain CMS (crew management roster) printed roster already issued for the month of February,” stated a letter written on February 3 by the Indian Commercial Pilots’ Association (ICPA) and Indian Pilots’ Guild (IPG).

According to airline sources, the monthly duty roster has to be changed at last minute if a flight crew member does not show up because of various reasons such as health issues.  Read More
