"16 of our flights originating from Delhi and Mumbai have been cancelled," an AI spokesperson said.

Supporting the agitation, senior pilots wrote a letter to the chairman and managing director of AI and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, saying the demands of the pilots were genuine and they should be looked into, sources said.

About 200 pilots owing allegiance to the Indian Pilots' Guild are on strike since Tuesday protesting rescheduling of training on Dreamliner and issues related to career progression.
