Kingfisher to extend grounding of flights: CEO
Planes of Kingfisher Airlines, which have been grounded since October 1, would not fly until October 20.

Mumbai: Kingfisher Airlines will extend the date to restart the carrier's operations, its chief executive Sanjay Aggarwal told reporters, after a meeting with employees on Wednesday. Kingfisher said last week that its planes, grounded since October 1 after an employee protest turned violent, would not fly until October 20.

"Talks have been positive. We are moving in the right direction. We will have to extend the deadline to restart operations," Aggarwal said on Wednesday. Once India's second-biggest airline, Kingfisher has never turned a profit since its launch in 2005. It has defaulted on payments to airports, tax authorities and banks and is seven months behind on salary payments to staff.
