Aviation Industry is one which has drained most of the money across globe bankrupting almost all state sponsored airlines at least once in its lifetime. Its always better to leave air line industry in hands of expert in that field instead of government operating them for national pride.
Same stands for Air India & India Airlines. Both combinely have costed 80,000 crores to India tax payers plus GOI is committing more 30,000 crores for its revival in future which also is going go down the drain. The GOI should stop acting as service company and do what it best suited to do, run the country & governance. With current strike by pilots GOI has the right reason to sell AI & IA to private companies after opening FDA in domestic air line industry. Also will put an end to massive corruption being done by ministry to bottom employee in both companies.
The private air lines are matured enough to take control of Indian aviation.
