Kingfisher Will Not Restart Flights Until Strike is Over

A senior executive at Kingfisher Airlines said on Thursday that the airline will not resume flights until their employees end their strike and get back to work.  The unnamed executive said that some of the striking workers are using violence to prevent others from working and they cannot risk the safety of passengers or crew.  The strike and behavior of the striking workers caused Kingfisher to declare a lockout on Tuesday, which applied mainly to the airline's engineers.

On Wednesday, the aviation regulator submitted a report to the aviation ministry, expressing concern over the safety of Kingfisher flights with the engineers on strike.  The airline was once the second biggest in India, but is now the smallest and many of their employees have not been paid since March.  The airline has never turned a profit since its launch in 2005 and they are currently in debt for $1.5 billion, not including money they owe to suppliers, aircraft-leasing companies, and in taxes.
