New Delhi: Strikes by different employee unions have caused 127 crore loss to Air India and Jet Airways, said Civil Aviation Minister Praful Patel in the Lok Sabha.

"Estimated loss suffered by National Aviation Company of India Limited (NACIL) on account of these strikes was around 77 crore," Patel informed the Lok Sabha.

In May this year, two unions of the erstwhile Indian Airlines, All India Aircraft Engineers' Association (AIAEA) and Air Corporations Employees' Union (ACEU), had gone on a flash strike.

In September last, Air India's executive pilots had stopped the work by reporting sick en-mass after the airline proposed a cut in their flying allowance.

Also in September, pilots of private sector airline Jet Airways had struck by reporting sick.
