National Aviators Guild (NAG), the pilots union of cash-strapped airline Jet Airways, has been on a protest and said they will not fly the aircraft if the management does not clear their salary dues. The NAG has also served a legal notice to the airline and has set April 14 as the management's deadline to clear their dues.
Jet Airways pilots along with engineers and senior executives have not been paid for the last three months amid cash-drought in the airline that saw an ownership change last month with banks taking majority shares. Along with these staff, the airline has defaulted on the payment of March salaries to other employees as well. A total of 300 employees have gathered at Mumbai Airport.
The airline's lender consortium leader State Bank of India extended the bidding submission date to Friday, April 12. Earlier, the deadline was April 10.
On Thursday, it was reported that former Jet Airways chairman Naresh Goyal is also likely to submit his bids on the last day of submitting the bids. Some pilots have also placed the demand of wanting Naresh Goyal back on board. Here's a glimpse of the Jet Airways pilot protests:
