    Pilots and Engineers are protesting non-payment of April salaries.

    This might very well be the end...

    yeah, seriously why are they dragging this far. It has become vexatious to everyone involved.

    Letter from Kingfisher CEO to employees

    Following is the mail sent by Kingfisher CEO to employees declaring a partial lockout in the airline till Thursday.

    Dear Team Member, a series of protracted and unabated incidents of violence, criminal intimidation, assault, wrongful restraint and other illegal acts by a section of non-management Engineering staff and illegally refraining from attending work by a section of non-management Engineering staff and pilots which were all unnecessary and unprovoked commenced yesterday morning and continued today.

    As a result of the said illegal actions including the strike, the Company has been unable to operate its flights. Therefore a partial lock-out is declared with immediate effect in respect of the non-management employees belonging to the Engineering and Flight Operations departments. Management will review the situation on October 4, 2012 or the day on which this illegal strike is called off, whichever is earlier. Until such time, the Company is unable to operate flights as a result of the above said illegal actions.

    We will keep you informed of further developments.

    Best Regards,
    Sanjay Aggarwal
