Scandinavian airlines (SAS) lower wages
Accidents, fuel pricing and finacial crisis. These are some of the things whitch have been bad for the airline, and have now forced a company-wide lowering in wages.
It has not yet been decidet how much they go down, but the pilots have already agreed to work more, for less.
The airline is the biggest in scandinavia, and is half owned by the 3 states: Sweden, Norway and Denmark. It's and old company, formed in 1946, and has been undergoing a major reorganisation.
This has lead to a minor internal economy problem, a problem only made bigger by competition and now the finace crisis.
For now, there hasn't been any talk about firings, but there are sevrel rumors about an fussion with the german Lufthansa (Europes biggest airline).
The news comes, almost, at the same time as their brand new CJR 900 jets, are going in service. The jets are an replacement for their Q400 mishaps where 3 turboprop planes crashed, in a matter of weeks (nobody was seriously hurt).
The new planes are also a part of the company's eco-friendly programme.
