Agitating Jet Airways pilots on Wednesday said that they were "not under any pressure" after airline chairman Naresh Goyal threatened to close down operations due to the ongoing crisis.
Gireesh Kaushik, President of National Aviator Guild, also held the airline management responsible for the passengers' woes.
"We just want our voice back in the company. We want back our two colleagues who were sacked. It (passengers' problems) is not due to us. We are trying to bring the situation back to normal," Kaushik, who arrived here to meet DGCA officials to put forth his union's views, said.
Asked whether they were under pressure after Goyal's statement that he is ready to close down operations of the airlines, he said "We are not under any pressure."
On the probability of imposition of ESMA, he said whatever they want to impose, they can do it. "We are going in honest direction," Kaushik said.
He said it was not a strike as each one of the pilots have joined the agitation by themselves.
