Air India has grounded a total of 19 aircraft, including both narrowbodies and widebodies, due to a lack of spares, the Indian Commercial Pilots Association's (ICPA) has alleged.

"Almost 23% of the Air India fleet is grounded for lack of spares. Additionally, a significant number of flights are getting cancelled or rescheduled on a daily basis. There are also aircraft fleet swaps which result in last minute change of inventory resulting in non-optimal revenue management and utilisation. All of this is having a significant impact on the bottom line of Air India," the ICPA said in an open letter to the airline's management and published in the country's press.
