It isn't exactly the best rap video out there and is unlikely to replace Gangnam Style anytime soon, but a uniformed pilot rapping about his experience at national airline Air India has managed to raise the hackles of the airline management.
The unidentified pilot's expletive-filled song about the situation within national carrier Air India on YouTube has invited criticism from his employers, and has also been termed sexist because of what it says about the female cabin crew members. And this despite a disclaimer asking people 'to just enjoy the music'.
The video opens with the pilot laying out all his accessories and dressing up only to be told that his flight has been cancelled. And then he lets us have it.
"It's been more than five months since i haven't got paid, time and time again I have been betrayed," he raps.
The rap song blames the big bosses in the organisation for the mess that the airline has landed into.
"Coz everyone knows pilots of my airline have done a good job, it’s few people at the top who’s f***** us up and robbed (sic),” the pilot sings.
The pilot accuses the airline of not giving NoCs, saying, "They don’t even let me leave, they don’t gimme NoC, plz tell them it’s not Air Force… I aint at LoC."
Air India officials are understandably unamused about the video.
A Hindustan Times report quoted an official as saying, “What does he mean he is not being given a NoC? Dozens of pilots have left AI. Who is stopping him?”
