Jet Airways is facing huge financial crisis with National Aviators Guild (NAG) - the organisation of domestic pilots of Jet Airways being surrounded by problems.
The notice has been handed to the management to pay due salaries till April 14. With this, the number of daily flights has been reduced to 32 from Jet Airways.
