India’s aviation authorities say can’t interfere in Akasa dispute – filing

India's aviation authorities have ruled out intervening in a dispute between Akasa Air and its pilots after the budget carrier accused the regulator of inaction, a legal filing shows. Over 40 of Akasa's 450 pilots quit without serving their notice in recent weeks, and the airline has sued some of them and challenged Indian authorities in court for not acting on its requests to deal with alleged pilot "misconduct". India mandates a notice period of 6-12 months for pilots which some pilot organisations are challenging in court.
