At least 78 international and domestic Air India Express flights were cancelled after senior crew members reported sick overnight without notice. Airline sources told India Today TV that they suspected the crew members to be unhappy with the performance-linked incentive component of salaries after the revamp and restructuring.

Meanwhile, efforts to reach out to the protesting cabin crew members have been fruitless so far.

In a statement earlier, an Air India Express spokesperson said, "A section of our cabin crew reported sick at the last minute, starting last night, resulting in flight delays and cancellations. While we are engaging with the crew to understand the reasons behind these occurrences, our teams are actively addressing this issue to minimise any inconvenience caused to our guests as a result."
