An Air India pilot's music video which went viral on YouTube has angered the management of the crisis-stricken airline.
The singer in the video also left AI's airhostesses fuming by calling them "aunties".
"How do I fly with women in 60'ies they call them airhostess we call them Aunties," goes the lyrics.
The five-minute, 14-second video was uploaded by a user who goes by the name "VivusStudios" with a note: "A pilot goes thru lot of stress if made to sit at home ... this is for all my mates who r in similar condition ... Take it in healthy spirit, its not meant to hurt anyone's feelings. Its just music... for once just enjoy the video."
The video shows a man in the customary pilot uniform receiving a phone call saying that the flight is cancelled.
"What do I say to people what kind of pilot am I...who sits at home most of the time and never gets to fly. It's been more than 5 months since I haven't got paid...Time and time again and again I have been betrayed," goes one of the lines.
"They even don't lemme leave, they don't gimme NoC... Plz tell them its not Air Force, I aint at LoC,"
"What the f*** ma, why are you guys keeping quiet, how are you guys running home, do you have any other business by your side. I am filling bankruptcy, and I am getting bored. I am finished with all my money and lost all hope."
Enraged over the video, a ministry official said the pilot breached the code of conduct by rapping to expletives while wearing the uniform. "Would he have dared to do this if he worked for a private airline?" asked the official, reported Hindustan Times.
