Pilots at the troubled airline Jet Airways are protesting outside their company headquarters as the carrier announced it was grounding all international flights.
Employees of the Indian carrier, which is straddling a debt pile of more than £900m, gathered outside its headquarters and demanded that the Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, intervene.
One pilot told the BBC: “We haven’t been paid for the last four months. It’s been a really difficult period. Many people here are the sole breadwinners for their families. We’re hoping the lenders would agree to give money to keep the airline going.”
