The pilots of Kingfisher who have been patient and listening to the excuses made by the management on weekly basis decided to write back and inform the concerned about their intentions. The letter they wrote to the chairperson said, “We appeal you to pay Two months’ salary [December 2011 and January 2012] on the 3rd April 2012 latest by 2000 hours and the balance of our dues to be paid latest by 20th April 2012 [February 2012 and March 2012].
