The US lessor is claiming US$3.3 million in unpaid rental charges on three B737-200s the airline has on a five-year lease until 1997. </p> <p>At presstime, the two parties were in mediation following a Supreme Court ruling overturning a lower court order for the aircraft to be impounded and returned to the lessor. Instead, it ordered East West to make an interim payment of US$700,000 by mid-April. The case comes against a backdrop of threats by the DGCA to limit East West's operations unless it flies the thinner category II routes. </p> <p>Along with the widespread liquidity crunch, the current problems appear to stem from naivety.
