“The protest was over the delay in payment of salaries for the month of March,” said an airline source. “By evening, some pilots were of the opinion that they should continue flying till August 13, as the management promised them on Wednesday that salary disbursement for March will begin on that date,” he added.

This is the fourth time since February Kingfisher’s pilots have walked off the job for not getting their pay.
Kingfisher Airlines is barely struggling to stay afloat while operating less than 25 percent of its flights.
