According to sources the airline’s lenders might get their deadline extended if the response remains poor.

 

 

For the troubled airline it is tough to get bidders as it is tries to get a buyer who will bring urgent funding to pay employees, lessors and get the operations rolling as earlier.

 

Currently the airline is flying 26 of its 119 aircraft and deferred salary payments to all its employees.

 

 

On Tuesday a notice was sent to CEO Vinay Dube by the pilots union, National Aviators Guild  which demanded the payment of salary dues by April 14. If the company fails to do so, the employees will resort to all constitutional and legal methods available.
