Kingfisher and Air India Pilots Strike

Kingfisher Airlines pilots based in Delhi have gone on strike and by this evening those in Mumbai plan to join them.  The airline has struggled in recent months and this will throw a wrench in their plans to stay afloat.  Currently, the airline has called in their management pilots, but this will only work for for a few days before those pilots cannot work due to the potential for extra-duty violations.  An airline source said the pilots are calling in sick, with the excuse that the stress from not receiving their salary is the cause of it.

Air India is suffering a similar predicament with their pilots, although for a different reason.  Nearly 300 Air India pilots have gone on strike and none have reported to work by the Thursday morning deadline.  In response the airline has stopped booking all long-haul flights for the time being.  The pilots have been calling in sick and a number of them have been fired.  Management at Air India is trying to determine whether they can suspend the pilots involved temporarily or even permanently.

The above article is a summary.  Please see the source article at Google News.
