Andreas Lindberg: SAS has a lot of work ahead of it to minimize the damage

scheduled to lift some flights already on Friday morning but it will be a while before the order is completely restored.

such A large event will always receive the second-round effects, and it is no easy task to get in the way all strejkdrabbade passengers on new flights when the regular departures are already fully booked. As a traveler, you should take the height of the continued delays and overloaded customer service in at least one or a couple of days to come.

the issue of wages ended with an increase of 3.5 per cent – a far cry from the pilots wanted to have. At the same time get the pilots they want to as regards the restriction of the company's ability to bring in subcontractors, which is said to have been the crucial issue in the whole thing. It is important for the pilots and will be more expensive for SAS.

Based on what the ceo Rickard Gustafson told at the press conference, it is difficult to determine how much better the scheduling will be, but the pilots have obviously gone on it so it should be a step in the right direction.

it took over 30 hours long lock-indicates that the agreement set far inside of both parties and reflects the enormous distance that had been between them in the spring. The concessions cost so clear for the SAS and it is no impossibility that they will need to save elsewhere.

at the same time teach the pilots not to be completely satisfied, but will probably continue to push the employer. The question is if there is no sheer winner in this. None of them is said to have charmed the scandinavian people in all cases.

the Company has not made any estimate, at least not as gone out with, but it is clearly the seven days that will put their tracks. Both in the income statement as at förtroendekontot.

the SAS-management can take a breather in the evening but you have a lot of work ahead of it to quickly minimize the damage. Lönepåslaget is, unlike the strike, no one-time expenditure, but will continue to cost in the future.

But it is mainly the new agreement on limited use of subcontractors that can be a tough history for the SAS. Today is flown approximately 30 percent of the sections with such arrangements, and it is a deal that is both cheaper and more flexible for them. It has been speculated that they wanted to expand the system but now it seems to be a stop to it.

Exactly how the contract looks, however, is not known at the moment.

Analysts have estimated that the strike cost between 60 and 100 million sek every day. Then it is probably not any claims for compensation from angry travelers included. Refund of tickets to affected passengers is already a fact of life for the SAS, but this opens the door for that they also have the right to compensation, it becomes even more expensive for the company.

the Company must pay compensation for the loss of flight to anyone who has not come away or been booked on to new flights. Then there are special circumstances in which the company may be forced to pay additional compensation to travelers who become guests sit at airports around the world.

It can be anything from 250 to 600 euros extra per affected traveler who requires compensation, far from all do it. The premise of it is that the strike is not classed as an ”extraordinary event” which the company is not able to check.

SAS has already gone out and said it considers the strike as extraordinary, which was to be expected. You want to of course not pay compensation if you do not have to.

however, This may change when it is denied-go to the board for consumer complaints (ARN) to bring the matter before.

Decisions, which is not mandatory, so they can, in theory, continue to refuse to pay, but generally follow most of the airlines ARN's recommendations – and it wont even SAS do.
