Jet Airways has served termination notices to more than 850 cabin crew and executives and Kingfisher, too, is likely to trim its staff strength from its present strength of 10,000 employees.

The Jet employees who had been laid off have gone on a protest against their dismissal in Mumbai and plan to meet Maharashtra Navnirman Sena chief Raj Thackeray and seek his intervention. The sacked employees claim they got their termination letters on Tuesday, Oct 14 and add that the letter does not mention any compensation. Some say they were not even sent any letters, but were verbally told that their services had been terminated. "It will hamper our career and it will hamper our future. If they (Jet) were planning to terminate us then why did they recruit us," said a female employee who lost her job.

"We don't know anything right now. We came here just for this (termination letter). They are saying that we have been terminated but why we don't know," another employee added.

Anger at the sudden dismissal was evident amongst the employees. "No one can understand how we are feeling. They destroyed everything in just a day. What do they think of themselves?" an executive said. Her colleague echoed the sentiment. "Without any notice they have just did this. My friend messaged and she told me that we have all been terminated."
