Scandinavian Airlines strike in Afternoon, affecting thousands

A strike among pilots in Scandinavian Airlines has now entered its fourth day with the carrier being made to cancel 1,213 flights Monday and Tuesday, affecting some 110,000 passengers.

The flag company of Norway Denmark and Sweden says over 170,000 passengers are affected since the attack started. The strike started with the SAS Pilot Group, which represents 95 percent of the corporation’s pilots after the collapse of pay discussions.

There is not any sign of when talks could restart on a new collective bargaining agreement.

Jacob Pedersen states that the pilots want their share of company earnings after the company posted a profit in the previous four years.
