[Ticker] Pilots from Denmark, Norway, and Sweden strike

EU Reporter

About 1,000 SAS pilots from Denmark, Norway and Sweden went on strike Monday following several months of failed attempts to reach an agreement. Around 200-250 flights and 20,000-30,000 passengers will be affected every day of the dispute, which could push the semi-public SAS company into bankruptcy. The unions are demanding that new pilots are not hired on cheaper agreements in the two subsidiaries SAS Link and SAS Connect.
