Such incidents can affect their reputation and will need to be addressed properly. This is not the first time Indigo has cancelled or diverted its Flight due to staff shortages, its flight were severely impacted due to Sick leaves by cabin crews and Aircraft technicians.
The poor working conditions, overtight schedules and less pay are affecting airline employees. They must take into consideration this fact and carry out their operations otherwise it can affect the safety of aircraft, crew and passengers.
