Salaries for Kingfisher airlines staff

NEW DELHI: A day after declaring a partial lockout, top officials of beleaguered Kingfisher Airlines on Tuesday met DGCA chief and promised to pay salaries of the staff held up for last six months in the next few days.

The airline CEO Sanjay Agarwal, who along with executive vice-president Hitesh Patel met DGCA chief Arun Mishra, blamed a small section of employees for the mess, saying it had led to suspension of all operations till October four. The airline has stopped sale of tickets till then.

Agarwal briefed the DGCA about the financial problems facing the crisis-ridden carrier as well as the next steps being taken to restore normalcy.


  1. Why the double standards? An average indian if defaults on minor loan from bank gets hauled up faces seizure of its assets, here loan of 1.8 Billion USD outstanding and banks running across to find out the rescheduling package. No doubt we live in a different India.
