With the Jet resolution plan collapsing after Etihad’s exit, pilots of the Naresh Goyal-led airline have announced their decision to stop flying from April 1 if there’s no rescue deal by then. Jet pilots, like other employees of the airline, have not been paid salary since December.
While lenders attempted once again to save Jet from falling, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation too called an emergency meeting.
DGCA, however, did not stop Jet Airways from making passenger bookings despite mass cancellations and grounding of planes. It only stated that the airline was now operating 41 aircraft compared to 103 in October.
