SAS Says 6-Day Pilot Strike Cost it $68 Million

NORTH CAROLINA – Scandinavian Airlines says that a six-day pilot strike that led to the cancellation of 4,000 flights and affected more than 370,000 passengers cost 650 million kronor ($68 million).
SAS said that the walkout, which ended May 2 when the sides reached a three-year collective bargaining agreement, “negatively impacted” its second quarter, for which it reported a $125 million loss.
CEO Richard Gustafson says it “added to the challenges already faced by SAS,” which include tough competition, increasing fuel prices and a weakening Swedish currency.
Gustafson said that the result for the three-month period that ended April 30, “is far from satisfying.”
