Further travel misery is on the cards for Air India passengers.

The airline has sacked 10 pilots, amid a dispute over the allocation of training for the company’s new Boeing 787 Dreamliner planes.

Dozens of disgruntled pilots have called in sick, causing some services to be grounded.

The country’s aviation minister has described the action as “illegal” and has derecognised the Indian Pilot Guild union.
