I'm flying them tonight so I'm a little worried.

Not so much for the airline but their awful IRROPs if anything goes wrong.

More money to be pumped into AI now I guess... the 29,000 CR to help reduce their debt wasn't enough I guess.

So if its OK to go on pouring public money into the bottomless pit that is Air India, why are people like Mallya being hounded ?

What a silly question. Firstly the two acts aren't comparable. Being a welfare airlines vs. stealing money are completely separate things.

Secondly banks, govts. and all those intuitions are allowed to gamble, cheat, steal, be corrupt, manipulate rates to fudge accounts & records and divert funds wherever they want. There is zero accountability there.

Individuals can't. And when they fall out of political favour they're hit hard.

Flying AI CCU-HYD on Thursday, ordinarily would fly Indigo, GoAir or Spicejet, but Air India happened to work out best this time... to be fair they're mostly ok actually whenever I've flown them, let's hope it works out this time...

No flights are being cancelled. So you'll make it there. Maybe late. But you'll make it.
