Jet Airways pilots behaving like terrorists: Goyal

Mumbai, Sep 9: Jet Airways Chairman Naresh Goyal on Wednesday, Sep 9, warned of strict action against pilots if they continue to report sick 'in violation of a Bombay High Court order'.

"They are behaving like terrorists. They cannot hold the country, passengers and the airline hostage," Goyal said, as the carrier was forced to cancel some 170 flights for the second day running.

"I am open to meeting and talking to the pilots. I will be more than happy to meet them. But they cannot harass the passengers," he said.

"This is pure and simple contempt of court," he added, referring to the Bombay High Court order on Tuesday evening, restraining the pilots from any form of strike in the country's largest private airline.

"We won't tolerate such blackmail. The livelihood of more than 30,000 employees of Jet Airways is at stake," the airline chief said after another round of meetings with top government officials in New Delhi.

The Jet Airline operations have been disrupted for the second consecutive day on Wednesday, Sep 9, because of the mass 'sick leave' by pilots, resulting in some 170 flights being cancelled.
