Mumbai: Kingfisher Airlines on Monday cancelled 11 flights from Mumbai after many of its pilots failed to report for workaccording to reports.
The airline said in a statement"Some of the flights are being cancelled as a result of employees' agitation on account of delayed salaries. This situation has arisen as a consequence of our bank accounts having been frozen by the tax authorities,"
Stating that the flight loads have reduced because of limited distribution ability caused by IATA suspension, the airline said it is combining some flights.
The airline said."We are making all possible efforts to overcome this temporary situation. We will operate approximately 80 percent of our planned schedule. We expect to return to our full schedule shortly,"
