India's second-largest private airline, Jet Airways, on September 9 cancelled more than 200 flights after pilots walked out, prompting crisis talks between the company's owner and the government. About 432 pilots are now on sick leave, in what Jet officials called a 'simulated strike' designed to inconvenience travellers. Those not reporting for work represented over 55 percent of Jet's 760 national pilots. AFP PHOTO/ MANAN VATSYAYANA (Photo credit should read MANAN VATSYAYANA/AFP/Getty Images)
