IndiGo had cut salaries by about 28% at the peak of Covid and now after two partial roll backs, current pay is now lower by about 16% from pre-2020 levels. It has also reinstated some allowances for pilots.
But now the discontent amid IndiGo crew has spread from pilots — who were the first to make the same known earlier this year after which some were suspended — to cabin crew now. Last Saturday such a large number of IndiGo cabin crew reported for walk-in interviews of Air India that 55% of its flights got delayed. Other Indian airlines have also started rolling back Covid-time cuts for crew members.
