Kingfisher Airlines to curtail overseas operations
More trouble at the Indian carrier
"We would like to confirm that we are curtailing our wide body overseas operations that are bleeding heavily," the airline said in a statement on Wednesday, adding that it had already returned one Airbus to its UK lessor as a result.
Despite the shortage of crew, Kingfisher Airlines operated 101 flights on March 13th and will operate 101 flights on March 14th.
Our prime mission is to maintain schedule integrity by predicting in advance what we can with the sole objective of minimizing, if not eliminating guest inconvenience.
We try hard 24X7 to inform guests in advance of cancelled or combined flights and to give them the option of travelling on other airlines or to take a full refund.
There will, inevitably, be a small number of guests who are inconvenienced partially because we could not access them personally but only via their agents.
Kingfisher apologizes to all those who were affected.
Many of our pilots and engineers have expressed their disappointment, we not only sincerely apologize to them but wish to advise that our Chairman will meet the pilot fraternity on Thursday March 15 in Delhi.
