The National Guild of Airmen (NAG) decided not to fly on Monday at 10 am to protest the "non-payment of employee contributions," a source said Sunday.

Pilots, engineers and senior management have not received a salary since January. The indebted carrier also did not pay the March wage to employees in other categories.

The NAG, which claims the representation of about 1,100 pilots out of a total of 1,600 with the full-service carrier, had called late March to stop flying as of April 1 for non-payment of wages.

However, on March 31, he postponed the commotion to April 15, declaring he wanted to give more time to the new leadership.

Jet Airways is currently under the control of the management of the syndicate of lenders led by SBI after the approval of a debt restructuring plan last month, which also led its founding chairman, Naresh Goyal, to leave office.
