After many services got cancelled due to a lightning strike by the cabin crew, the Air India Express started the check-in process for its Kochi - Dubai flight. The flight is scheduled for 1.10 pm today. More details on whether any other service will be conducted is being awaited. The carrier has cancelled more than 80 flights and scores of flights have been delayed. Apologising to the customers for the "unexpected disruption", the airline's spokesperson said those impacted by the cancellations will be offered a full refund or complimentary rescheduling to another date. 

Late last month, a union representing a section of the Air India Express cabin crew alleged that the airline is being mismanaged and there is a lack of equality in the treatment of the staff. "Guests flying with us today are requested to check if their flight is affected, before heading to the airport," the spokesperson said.
