After what seems like an endless ordeal, the striking Jet Airways pilots are finally seeking a reconciliation with the authorities. As the strike entered its second day on Wednesday, spelling more cancellations and inconvenience to passengers, the management toughened its stand and sacked five more pilots on Wednesday morning. A total of ten pilots have been sacked as a result of this ordeal.

A meeting is likely between the Jet Airways management and the pilots union in an effort to end the deadlock arising out of the agitation by the pilots.

Chairman Naresh Goyal and National Aviators Guild President Captain Girish Kaushik are likely to hold talks on the issue of pilots going on leave, Jet Airways pilots union sources said.

The time and the venue of the meeting is still to be worked out, they said. Currently, a meeting of the management is underway to discuss the issue.
