Debt-ridden  Kingfisher Airlines has posted Rs 755 crore loss for the December quarter, up 70% (year-on-year) as its planes sat idle, creditors circled and regulators rebuffed the carrier's revival plans. The company did now show up any income for the quarter as it has ceased operations.

KFA, which has been stripped of its flying licence, owes an estimated Rs 12,000 crore to banks, staff, airports and oil companies.

The airline, once India's second-biggest, has spent the past few months negotiating with its creditors and aviation authorities. Civil aviation minister Ajit Singh has said, KFA needs at least USD 186 million to fly again.

Shares in the firm fell 2 percent on Monday ahead of earnings announcement. Its shares have fallen 56 percent over the past year, making it the third worst-performing global airline in terms of stock price, according to Thomson Reuters Starmine.

Kingfisher, controlled by billionaire Vijay Mallya, has never posted a profit in its eight years of operations, and lost a combined 33.1 billion rupees in 2012.
