Aerospace Diary learns a Kingfisher flight leaving for Mumbai from Delhi at around 3pm had no valets nor loaders to handle luggage as they decided to demand dues owed to them by the carrier. Aerospace Diary has confirmed they are on strike.
Following the safety scare, which we feel was a bit misconstrued and badly handled last week, the Kingfisher aircraft on the runway returned “due to a technical fault,” that was reported to airport officials. However, passengers inflight had another story to tell. An announcement made by the captain that there was “a burning smell," the reason they were not taking off, panicked most who had read the safety story last week.
What a way to instill confidence in your customers! The good news is the flight was full.
