As the last installment of their September salary is still pending, several pilots of Jet Airways went on ‘sick leave’ affecting the schedule of over 18 flights. Though the airline official said these flights were affected due to “operational reasons”, sources confirmed that many pilots had indeed reported sick. The airline company has told pilots that the last installment of September salary component, comprising 25 percent, will be paid on December 4. The dates and manner in which salaries for October and November will be disbursed are yet to be announced. What pilots have been told, however, is that this will be done within the next 4 months. A Jet Airways spokesperson denied that pilots went on sick leave. In a statement, Jet Airways said that the company continues to enjoy the complete support and cooperation of all its employees, including pilots and engineers, individually and through their respective representative bodies, who have extended their solidarity and full support to the airline. “The airline would like to reiterate that the reason for the cancellations of December 2 flights was due to an unforeseen operational circumstance, and not pilot non-cooperation, as is being unduly speculated,” the airline spokesperson said. In a statement, NAG said, “As a responsible body, NAG is committed to and confident of working through and resolving any challenges including disbursement of salaries, with our management team at Jet Airways. We will endeavor to assist and be a part of the solution for our company in facing these challenges. This we will do through continued dialogue and ensuring that we work with the management to achieve the efficiencies and enhanced service standards, to create a healthier and resilient airline for the future.”
