Its Global Aviation Recession, Pilots must co operate, Pilots’ strike grounds over 40 Kingfisher Airlines flights.
About 75-80 Kingfisher Airlines pilots went on a strike on Saturday, leading to the cancellation of over 40 flights across the country. The grounded flights included seven from Mumbai. The pilots were protesting the delay in the payment of salary.
Dubbing Saturday an 'important' and 'sad' day, KFA promoter Vijay Mally warned his staff that the strike would only add to problems. Urging them not to "disgrace" the airline, he warned that damaging the reputation of the carrier in the eyes of the public would not produce cash.
The airline said it had paid (February's) salary to 75% of its staff and would pay the rest by Monday. Unhappy with the strike, DGCA Prashant Sukul has warned that the carrier "would be reviewed" next week if the stir did not end by Monday
Happy Landings ..........
