Crisis-hit Jet Airways to pay salaries in instalments to senior staff till April

A Jet Airways spokesperson said the airline is committed to meeting all its salary obligations and has already paid salary to 85 per cent of its workforce on time for the November payroll.

The Abu Dhabi-based Etihad had come to the rescue of the Naresh Goyal-controlled airline during the earlier downturn too.
Rising price warfare in India has hurt Jet which competes with no-frills, low-cost carriers like InterGlobe Aviation Ltd's IndiGo and SpiceJet Ltd.
Officials have not divulged how the pilot woke up before landing the plane safely.
Air India is reeling under a huge debt burden of over Rs 50,000 crore and the government is planning to sell its non-core subsidiaries of the national carrier.
The government, in the past, had said that it is committed to ensuring the earliest implementation of the in-flight connectivity framework.
They are also planning to price the flights significantly lower than private chartered jets.
The Naresh Goyal-controlled airline will not operate as many as 39 services per week to Doha, Muscat, Abu Dhabi and Dubai from various domestic cities.
Besides the remaining 25 per cent unpaid September salary, the senior management along with pilots and engineers are yet to be paid for October as well.
Despite its troubles, it seems that Jet is in better condition than Air India, at least in terms of operational parameters.
