Air India to ask Star Alliance for membership fee refund and compensation

9-Aug-2011 10:23 AM

Air India reportedly plans to ask Star Alliance to refund the amount paid as membership fees, following the carrier’s suspension to join the global airline alliance (The Telegraph, 08-Aug-2011). The carrier also plans to ask for a compensation payment, to cover costs incurred while it attempted to prepare itself for membership. Air India’s integration to Star Alliance was delayed because it did not have an integrated IT system between domestic and international operations until Feb-2011.
