New Delhi, Sep 10: While the pilots continued their protest for the third day demanding that their sacked colleagues be reinstated, Jet Airways ground staff urged them to withdraw their agitation and not put their 'future at risk'.
"We appeal to the pilots to give up their agitation. Our airline is making losses and now due to the pilots' agitation, our revenue is going to other airlines. How will we get our salaries?" a Jet Airways supervisor, Ashwani said.
The staff said that they were sympathetic to the pilots' problems, but there are other ways to resolve these issues.
"We are already going through recession. Our salaries will be delayed. The airline is already undergoing losses. The pilots cannot put our future at risk," said a customer care executive Jagjeet Kaur.
"Just because of these 600 pilots, 13,000 other employees cannot be made to suffer. We are with (chairman) Mr Naresh Goyal in this time of crisis," she added.
