There was a 2-day training held for the staff members in August and there's going to be another session held for the cabin crew members in Mumbai and other cities across the country. Talking about the same, Chairman and Managing Director of Air India Ashwani Lohani stated that the organisation is taking sexual harassment complaints very seriously and he's attending each session personally. 

In 2019, Air India had received 8 complaints related to sexual harassment as compared to 10 complaints in 2018. Recently, in May 2019, an Air India pilot alleged that in a flight between Delhi to Hyderabad, the commander had allegedly sexually harassed her. After this incident, Lohani stated that they will set up a high-level inquiry and address every complaint seriously.  Over 3,000 cabin crew members were covered in the first phase of the session and the same number of staff members are expected to be covered in the next phase.
