Ramp Coordinator (Former Employee) says"Air India is one of the most unorganized airline that anyone would wanna work unless they are in desperate need of a job. This company at the current times is going in some serious financial losses and is unable to recover. It is very sad to say that they have bills pending from hotel after hotels costing up to 500,000 dollars which is not surprising at all due to their defective aircraft as well as their unorganized management. I am happy that I have left this airline because they weren't appreciative nor were they encouraging for the effort and dedication that was put on by the outsource staff.Lounge FoodToo Many"
