Passengers flying or booked on Kingfisher Airlines were stuck in aircrafts and airports across the country on Sunday (yesterday) when the airline’s engineers went on a flash strike. The engineers have gone on strike due to non-payment of salary dues since March 2012. Flights from major metros of Delhi and Mumbai were also affected.
The airline in an official statement said, “A section of employees of Kingfisher Airlines has not been reporting to work over the last fortnight and over the past 2 days. They have been threathening and even manhandling the other employees who are reporting to work as usual. We are anticipating disruptions or delays of flights across our network on 1 October as it is likely that a section of Kingfisher Airlines may not report to work due to such threats.”
