Angry birds

All's not in well at Kingfisher Airlines,as per secret reports, Angry Birds(like frustrated passengers) attacked Kingfisher airlines office after non payment of royalty on account of zero balance bank accounts.

"Last week we asked Kingfisher for payment its old dues of Rs 250 for our daily sustenance. They gave a cheque of Rs 14/- which bounced. Now Kingfisher has written saying we should wait for our money as the other option for the airline is to fish down in ocean and seas. The crisis at Kingfisher is getting worse by the day." said one disgruntled bird in hurry with a some fishes in its beak.
The airline's bank accounts were recently frozen by bank authorities for maintaining zero balance; their employees have not been paid for two months now; their operational fleet is running on alcohol by the day and beers by night, vendors at airport have run up huge dues by drunk employees. But what the sozzled aviation ministry does remains to be seen.

In a statement, a spokesperson for beleaguered privately-run Kingfisher Airlines (KFA) said the flight disruptions were owing to certain unexpected incidents like bird hits which rendered its aircraft and offices out of service." We are not going to pull out operations from any base and about 10 aircraft will be back in service soon. We are in talks with angry birds and the airline will able to pacify them."

While admitting that its bank accounts have been attached by the authorities, KFA said in the past also similar issues have happened and they have been resolved.

While this latest account attachment has crippled the almost bankrupt airline's cash flow, the fact that an aircraft suffered a bird attack, had a cracked windshield on Friday further brought down its pruned operational fleet.
The spokesperson also dismissed rumours that the KFA had resorted to selling empty beer bottles as low fares as 'illogical', since the airline focuses on the full service bottle segment which affords higher kick yields.
"We have had a good meeting with our consortium of birds who have accepted, Our request for additional time for order fulfillment has been acknowledged by the Bird Union and is subject to individual approvals," the spokesperson said.

The developments came barely two days after high fuel costs and falling revenue resulted in KFA losses in the third quarter of the current fiscal -- mounting to Rs.444 crore from a net loss of Rs.254 crore in the like quarter of 2010-11.
