A major crisis at the struggling carrier Jet Airways was averted Sunday after its pilots' body National Aviator's Guild (NAG) deferred to April 15 its call of halting operations.

The decision was taken at an open house meeting of NAG members that took place both in Mumbai and Delhi Sunday afternoon, a guild source said.

The NAG, which claims representation of around 1,100 pilots of the total 1,600 with the full-service carrier, last month announced that its members will not fly from April 1 unless their pending salary dues were cleared and clarity on future payments was provided by March 31.
