NEW DELHI Oct 19 Grounded Indian airline
Kingfisher is likely to lose its licence, a government
source said on Friday.
"Suspension of licence is very much on the cards," the
source said, adding that it could be as early as Oct. 21 or 22.
The action comes after debt-laden Kingfisher sought more
time to respond to the aviation regulator's show cause notice on
why its license should not be cancelled or suspended.
The airline last week said its planes would remain grounded
until Oct. 20, having stopped flying at the beginning of the
month after an employee protest turned violent.
Kingfisher is yet to get approval from the regulator for its
winter schedule which starts on Nov. 6.
