Ex-airline staff seek BD700,000.
The claimants include pilots, cabin crew, administrative employees, sales staff and management.
An airline representative earlier appeared in the High Civil Court to produce a document stating that employees were already receiving severance packages in two phases.
The first instalment of 40 per cent is being paid up front, with a second payment of 60pc due later.
However, lawyer Faisal Al Ali yesterday requested compensation totalling BD700,000 for the 34 former employees who brought the claim.
Judges adjourned the case until April 16 for airline representatives to respond.
The GDN reported yesterday that a case was being filed next week that would challenge the voluntary liquidation and ask a court to commence bankruptcy proceedings for the carrier.
