Talks with pilots fail

New Delhi, July 2: Over 200 pilots of Kingfisher Airlines today decided to prolong their two-day-old strike after talks with the management to resolve the deadlock over the non-payment of salaries failed to make any headway.

At least four flights, including those from Mumbai to Chennai and Mangalore, were cancelled.

The strike has forced the airline to drop its ATR operations, which involve short-haul flights on small aircraft.

“We had an hour-long meeting with the management over the non-payment of salaries, which have not been paid since February. But the management did not offer any commitment on when they intend to pay us. So, we have decided to continue with our agitation,” Captain Yatin Pandit said after their meeting.

Another round of talks is expected on Thursday, airline sources said.
