Jet Airways cancels close to 50 flights as crew members report sick en masse

Jet Airways had to cancel close to 50 flights across the country and delay several others on the back of a crew shortage on Wednesday, five people in the know said. Many of the pilots reported sick and didn't go to work. This was because they weren't happy with a new rostering system the airline has put in place, said three of the people mentioned above. Jet operates more than 600 domestic and international flights daily. Airports executives in Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore and Hyderabad said Jet cancelled a total of 25 flights, while an executive at the state-run Airports Authority of India said more than 20 additional flights were cancelled in the rest of the country.
