News Summary: Kingfisher halts more flights

Associated Press

GROUNDED: India's Kingfisher Airlines has extended its shutdown and won't fly any planes for another week unless it can convince pilots and engineers who haven't been paid for months to return to work.

EXECUTIVE EFFORTS: Chief executive Sanjay Aggarwal has been crisscrossing the country to meet disgruntled employees but hasn't reached a deal, forcing the airline to prolong the shutdown that was meant to end Friday.

AT ISSUE: Workers are protesting over months of unpaid wages. India's airline regulator is worried about safety standards because engineers are on strike and can't certify that the planes are safe to fly.
