Beleaguered Kingfisher Airlines faced fresh trouble today with a section of pilots going on strike demanding immediate payment of salaries for March, resulting in cancellation of 19 flights. 


Beleaguered Kingfisher Airlines faced fresh trouble with a section of pilots going on strike demanding immediate payment of salaries for March.
"Eight departures from Mumbai and an equal number of flights from other places to the city have been cancelled due to non-availability of pilots in the wake of the strike by a section of its pilots," a Mumbai International Airport Ltd (MIAL) official told PTI here. 

Kingfisher flights from Delhi to Dharamshala, Udaipur and Dehra Dun were also cancelled. 

A Kingfisher Airlines spokesperson did not respond to repeated calls. 

In the second such action within a month, the pilots went on strike demanding release of salaries, affecting flight operations since morning. 

The stir comes after a meeting here between a group of pilots and KFA Chief Executive Sanjay Aggarwal over the salary issue ended without any results, airline sources said.
