this airline pushes fares  and cancels many flight

Amid challenges with pilots, Vistara announced on Sunday its decision to decrease capacity by 10 percent, equivalent to approximately 25-30 flights per day. The airline aims to stabilize its operations by scaling back its services. this reduction will bring their flight operations to the same level as at the end of February 2024.

Vistara experienced a significant disruption in flight operations attributed to a combination of factors including crew unavailability and challenges with pilot strength amidst route expansion. Between March 31 and April 3, the airline had to cancel over 150 flights and delay 200 more for over two hours, causing extensive disruption. This escalation followed a period of daily cancellations averaging 15-20 since mid-February, coinciding with the announcement of a new pay structure ahead of the merger with Air India.

The pay structure, extending to Vistara from Air India, led to discontent among junior pilots as it reduced their minimum guaranteed flying allowance from 70 hours to 40 hours, resulting in potential pay cuts of ₹80,000 to ₹1.4 lakh out of a ₹3.4 lakh salary. Additionally, there are concerns among senior pilots regarding their seniority in the merged entity, as the implementation of a combined seniority list hasn't been fully realized. This disruption poses challenges to the consolidation efforts of the four Tata Group airlines.
