The pilots quit from their jobs claiming that they have not been paid their salaries yet. Meanwhile, Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) issued showcause notice to the airline demanding explanation of cancelling more than 80 flights in last two days which cause trouble for many passengers who had booked their plane tickets earlier.
Reacting to the issue, Kingfisher Airlines said they had to cancel flights as they were trying to reconfigure their aircrafts. Passengers had complained that they were not informed about the cancellations.
Moreover, DGCA has asked about the steps taken by the airlines so far in terms of returning passengers' airfares and providing them alternate modes of transportation to their destinations.
According to sources, Kingfisher airlines is currently running in loss with a debt of over Rs 7057 crore. Here it also can be recalled that recently the airline also had experienced a disruption in the flight operations after the state-run oil marketer HPCL temporarily stopped fuel supplies to Kingfisher.
