Kingfisher Pilot Strike Causes Flight Cancellations

Some of Kingfisher Airline’s pilots went on strike on Tuesday.  The strike action was due to unpaid salary and other unpaid dues that has been ongoing for the last five months.  The strike caused the cancellation of five domestic flights.  The pilots that went on strike are those who operate the smaller 70-seat ATR turboprop planes that are used for short-haul flights between regional airports.  The Airbus A-320 flights are still operating on schedule.


Among the cancelled flights were two flights from Delhi to Dharamsala, two flights to Dehradun, and one flight to Shimla.  This is the second strike action by disgruntled pilots in the past eight days.  At this point it is not clear how many pilots have joined the strike, but Kingfisher CEO Sanjay Aggarwal is expected to meet with them sometime soon.  There was no spokesperson for the airline available for comment.
