Talking about the difficulties that the crew members have been facing since last few months, an official have been quoted as saying, "Since August we have been paying from our pockets for expenses incurred in foreign countries."

Another crew member, meanwhile, chided, "We have received zero salary since the last two months. We cannot afford to fly on international flights and pay for our lunch, dinner abroad any longer. We are not flying as we have no money to pay for food abroad."
