Jet Airways unions defer strike plan

Jet Airways aircraft on tarmac

Jet Airways on Thursday grounded its services to and from the East and Northeast regions and suspended its global operations till Monday.

The March salaries of all the employees have been deferred, while the pilots, along with the engineers, have not been paid since January 1.

Jet Airways at present is operating only 6-7 planes as its nearly entire fleet is grounded owing to severe paucity of cash.

On its part, the airline said it has cancelled all global operations from April 12 to 15.

India's ailing Jet Airways drastically cut back its operations on Monday amid talks with investors on purchasing a controlling stake in the debt-laden airline. Reportedly, the pilots' union also reached out to Prime Minister Narendra Modi seeking help to save their 20,000 jobs.

On Sunday, as the midnight deadline set by the pilots union for clearing pending dues and sharing details of the revival plan drew closer, the pilots body, the National Aviators Guild (NAG) said it had "reviewed" the earlier "unanimous decision" of pilots to stop flying from April 15, if demands remained unachieved.

India's beleaguered Jet Airways was staring at a fresh crisis today as hundreds of pilots and other top staff threatened to go on strike over unpaid salaries.

According to the officer, Jet Airways will approach the lenders on Monday for interim funding.

Once India's second-biggest airline by market share, the Mumbai-based firm has defaulted on loans and struggled to pay aircraft lessors and staff.

After taking part in the meeting at the PMO, Kharola held a meeting through video conference with the management of Jet Airways. Jet Airways is now under the control of an SBI-led consortium of lenders.

Following complaints by passengers of lack of information on cancellation and non-receipt of refunds, civil aviation secretary Pradeep Singh Kharola had on Friday said that the Centre had asked Jet Airways to inform passengers 48 hours in advance about flight cancellations and take their problems into consideration. Therefore the "call of No Pay No Work stands deferred for the time being" to give the airline a chance of survival, it said.

It's unclear what happened to as much as 15 billion rupees of immediate funding that banks said last month they would provide the carrier.
