Kingfisher management convenes meeting today
With no end in sight to the 16- day impasse over a lockout and strike by its workers, Kingfisher Airlines management has called a meeting with their representatives on Wednesday in a last-ditch effort to convince them to return to work. The meeting, scheduled in Mumbai, is likely to be attended by top officials of the parent company, UB Group, apart from the airline top-brass. It comes three days before the lockout, imposed by the airline on 1 October and extended till 20 October, is to end. All flights across its network have remained cancelled since then. The liquor baron Vijay Mallya-owned carrier would also have to submit its reply to the directorate general of civil aviation’s [DGCA] show-cause notice by 20 October.
