Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah today said the cancellation of flights by Air India due to pilots' stir will not help the carrier in dealing with its troubles.

"Excellent, well done, Air India. This is just the way you drag yourself out of the hole you find yourself in, cancel more flights," Omar said in a sarcastic tweet on the cancellations of flights.

About 100 Air India pilots have not joined duty since last night, leading to cancellation of international flights today.

The pilots refused to join duty following the failure of talks with the Air India management over the rescheduling of Boeing 787 Dreamliner training.
