Gaurav Taneja’s Controversy With AirAsia

On June 14, 2020, Gaurav posted on Twitter that he had been fired from AirAsia “for advocating for safe operations of an aircraft and its passengers.”

The following were the concerns he brought up with the airlines:-

  • To save approximately 8 kgs of fuel, the airline made it a requirement for its pilots to complete 98% of “Flap 3” landings. He continued by saying that in some circumstances, a “Flap full” landing was a safer course of action that it wasn’t safe to proceed in that manner.

He added that if the pilot missed the goal, the airline would consider it a violation of SOP (Standard Operating Procedure).

  • The airline’s non-compliance with any COVID directives was Gaurav’s second point of contention.
  • The airline’s sick leave policy was the third problem. According to Gaurav, the airlines used the pilots’ sick leave to make up for the vacations. In order to maximize the use of labor, they shortened a holiday in return for sick days.

The fact that two top AirAsia officials were suspended for three months turned out to be a triumph for him, but he also lost his pilot position.
