Faced with no other options, Jet Airways’ pilots are considering filing a plea with the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) to recover salary. The pilots have not been paid since January.

“If the interim funding comes in, the salary may come in by tonight or tomorrow morning. We need more than ₹1,000 core. The aviation industry has perishable assets and the airline needs to be saved. If the funding does not include salaries, then the operations might get suspended. Then we will consider the option to approach the NCLT,”said a representative of the National Aviator's Guild (NAG), the Pilot body of Jet Airways.

Nearly 1,000 pilots of Jet Airways had decided to strike work from last Monday onwards until their salary dues are cleared by the company. But the strike was called off after it was made clear that the company did not have money to pay the dues.
