“Kardassis, whom Goyal roped in to help him in the airline’s turnaround plan, had gone on leave to his native place in November but after that, he did not return,” a source privy to the development told PTI on Sunday. The former chief executive officer parted ways with the airline after Goyal initiated discussions with his investment partner Etihad Airways for further stake sale to garner funds, said another source.
