The Air India’s Chairman and Managing Director, Ashwani Lohani had issued some rules to the pilots in May 2016. “The captain of a flight should often connect with passengers during the journey and, at the end of the first address, using the words ‘Jai Hind’ would make a tremendous impact,” Lohani said in a communication to his staff in May 2016.
Lohani said in a statement, “The cabin crew should greet the passengers while emplaning and deplaning with a ‘namaskar’ as was the tradition. A smile on the face and conversing sweetly and politely without an iota of irritation would be a good thing.”
