NEWS | AI withdraws contempt petition against its pilots in SC

Air India today withdrew its plea seeking initiation of contempt proceedings against the office bearers of Indian Pilots Guild (IPG) for allegedly obstructing the implementation of its order on training of pilots for the Dreamliner aircraft.

Appearing before a bench headed by Justice T S Thakur, advocate Lalit Bhasin said the national carrier no longer wants to pursue the case and sought to withdraw the petition.
The airline had on May 10 filed the application alleging that the protest by the IPG, which disrupted international flights of the airline, amounts to the contempt of the apex court orders. The strike had been called off later.
The IPG was protesting the national carrier's move to send pilots from both Air India and erstwhile Indian Airlines in equal numbers to get trained for flying the Boeing 787 Dreamliners, the first of which is likely to be inducted later this month.
