Jet to lay off 1,900 employees

October 16, 2008
India's top private carrier Jet Airways has decided to lay off 1,100 additional employees in the next few days, a top official said on Wednesday even as a right-wing Hindu group raised slogans and clashed with policemen outside the airlines' office in Mumbai.

Earlier in the day, Jet said it has retrenched 800 flight attendants and suspended its expansion programme, adding that it will also cut flights because of a slowdown in demand.
