NEWS | Will consider with sympathy the sacked pilots' plea: Air India to HC

 The Air India management today told the Delhi High Court that it has revoked the sacking of nine of the 101 pilots and would consider sympathetically the pleas by remaining others and decide them within four to six weeks.

Justice Reva Khetrapal, taking note of the changed stand of the national carrier, allowed the airlines to withdraw its civil suit against the pilots, seeking to restrain them from resorting to strike earlier.

The AI management had filed applications seeking contempt proceedings against the pilots after their strike was held to be prima facie illegal.

"The suit is allowed to be dismissed as withdrawn. All the interim applications are dismissed and interim orders stand vacated. Any observations, made during the hearing or in any of the orders, shall not be construed as observation on merits," Justice Khetrapal said while considering the submissions made by Air India counselLalit Bhasin http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/news/news-by-industry/transportation/airlines-/-aviation/will-consider-with-sympathy-the-sacked-pilots-plea-air-india-to-hc/articleshow/15106252.cms .
