To restart ops in phases, says KFA
Kingfisher Airlines said on Monday it will "restart in a phased manner," with own funding, and will not seek banks' support.

"We have also shared a full recapitalisation plan which will be further discussed with a small designated group of bankers," Kingfisher said in a statement, after a meeting with its lenders.
