123rf

Around Jet Airways 1,000 pilots have sought the Indian government's help to recover pending salaries and dues from the airline.

In a letter to the Labour Minister, they said the "situation is leading to extreme tension and frustration amongst our members, hardly an ideal situation for pilots in the cockpit".

They added that their pleas to the management have fallen on "deaf ears". 

In a statement, Jet Airways said it had not received any such communication and remains committed to meeting its salary obligations towards its employees and clearing all pending dues.
