Kingfisher safety a concern, say employees

Aerospace Diary learns Kingfisher Airlines is operating 14 of its aircraft instead of the "holding plan" with 20 aircraft that promised "service integrity". While this is not confirmed, TV Channels are reporting many cancellations today already that points in this direction.

One does hope that once again KF is not taking its people for a ride.

This is a letter addressed to the founder of KFA by its employees.

April 2, 2012


Dr. Vijay Mallya

Honorable chairman

Kingfisher Airlines Ltd.

Dear Sir,

With reference to your mail sent on 1 April, 2012 all the undersigned KFA employees have come to a point where operations have become unsafe due to stress caused by our financial constraints.

In the past we have received similar E-mails assuring us that salary would be paid on certain date. However, none of the assurances have been met. The resulted salary payments being overdue for four months has left employees feeling cheated and deceived resulting in non-believing your latest mail.

Now we appeal you to pay Two months’ salary (Dec'11 and Jan'12) on 3 April 2012 latest by 8:00 pm and the balance of our dues to be paid latest by 20th April 2012 (Feb'12 & Mar'12).

We are not currently in a mental state to undertake any duties and doing so would jeopardize the safety of our aircraft and more so ever our valuable guests.

All the employees have stood by you during this crisis and will continue to do so provided our personal welfare is also given due consideration

By All Employees
