The management of Air India has on July 23, 2012 told the High Court that it has revoked the sacking of nine pilots and would sympathetically consider the other cases. The other cases of the sacked pilots would be decided in the next four to six weeks.

Justice Reva Khetrapal, while talking a note of the changed stand of the National carrier allowed the airlines to withdraw its civil suit against the pilots seeking to restrain them from restoring to strike. Applications were filed by the Air India management seeking contempt proceedings against the pilots after their strike was declared as illegal. Khetrapal said that the suit has been allowed to be dismissed as withdrawn.
