Jet Airways pilots strike which was to begin from April 15 deferred

Naresh Goyal puts in bid to buy stake in Jet Airways

Naresh Goyal puts in bid to buy stake in Jet Airways

The airline is flying less than 50 flights a day, with a fleet of seven aircraft.

Meanwhile, in the previous meeting between the airline management and SBI on Friday, talks seemed inconclusive over fund infusion into the company. A refusal or further delay in releasing the interim funds could mean immediate and complete grounding of the airline.

Separately, the pilots, crew members and engineers may gather at the Jet Airways headquarters in Mumbai on April 14 morning, as a mark of protest.

The pilots of the cash-strapped Jet Airways who had been threatening to go on strike if their salaries are not paid, will hold a meeting on Monday before taking a final call on the strike.

The airline has also cancelled its long-haul, west-bound operations to and from Amsterdam, London and Paris till April 16, Jet Airways said on Sunday.

The airline has about 1,400 pilots, and about 75 percent are members of the Guild.

The pilots are divided on the issue of going on a strike as there are hardly any flights left to operate.

Following complaints by passengers of lack of information on cancellation and non-receipt of refunds, Civil Aviation secretary had Friday said the Centre had asked Jet Airways to inform passengers 48 hours in advance about flight cancellations, and take their problems into consideration.

Senior Jet Airways officials said that even if NAG members were to stop flying, the airline would be able to continue operating its 6 ATR turboprops using management pilots and the single Boeing 737 NG operating under JetLite, as its pilots are not NAG members. The airline, which is close to being shut down if its lenders don't transfer funds, had also deferred paying March salaries to all its employees.

Monday is also when SBI Caps will formally announce how many entities had submitted their expression of interest (EoI) for buying a stake in Jet Airways last week.

Initial bids were to be submitted by the end of April 10, but SBI extended the deadline to April 12. But given its high debt, of over Rs 8,000 crore, the lenders have been reluctant to put in more money. Whether the 26-year-old airline revives from that state or flies into the sunset could be known on Monday. In light of the meeting, the members have requested, through their Team Leaders, that the call of "No Pay No Work' be deferred to give the airline a chance of survival".
