Kingfisher Airlines pilots on strike again; 19 flights cancelled

Mumbai: Beleaguered Kingfisher Airlines faced fresh trouble on Saturday with a section of pilots going on strike demanding immediate payment of salaries for March, resulting in cancellation of 19 flights.
"Eight departures from Mumbai and an equal number of flights from other places to the city have been cancelled due to non-availability of pilots in the wake of the strike by a section of its pilots," a Mumbai International Airport Ltd (MIAL) official said.
Kingfisher flights from Delhi to Dharamshala, Udaipur and Dehradun were also cancelled.
