SAS cancels more than 1,200 flights including some from Prague
Scandinavian airline SAS cancelled more than 1,200 flights scheduled for Monday and Tuesday due to an ongoing pilot strike. The cancellation also affects flights between Prague, Oslo and Stockholm. The strike began on Friday 26 April, grounding some 2,800 flights and affecting 280,000 travellers. In the meantime, talks concerning salaries and working hours have come to a standstill. The SAS Trade Unions representing 95% of pilots call for more predictable and transparent working hours. The pilots also demand a 13% wage hike. Pilots’ demands are exaggerated, the airline said, adding however that it is ready to continue negotiating with pilots. At the same time, SAS warns that meeting the pilots’ demands would have catastrophic results for the company.
