Since this morning 07:04 LCL the AUA cockpit and Cabin crews are on strike. Many flights are operated by 13 wet-leased a/c from Titan, Styrian Spirit, Volare and more. Other flights are operated by Austrian Arrows or are delayed.
Detailed information on www.orf.at (sorry only in German).

In times of crises and bad economy the very well paid AUA pilots should immediatly go back to work! Otherwise AUA will be history shortly.... Or is that what they want??

due to the fact that INN is and was (except 2.5 years between where I was living in switzerland) my home airport which I cannot use because

a) I've no donkey which gives me daily serveral gold talers to pay the crazy fares  Sad
b) in case of a delay or cancellation the AUA group let you still alone and forget you  Sad
so due to these facts
my real home airport is Munich where I'm a frequent customer of SNBA, LH dba .... with payable fares and first mentioned with a GREAT service (and I have to admit, LH is now a lot better then three years ago)  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

and I like to see more of them on more austrian airports which could be easily possible when above mentioned are gone away ....

Has SkyEurope begun to take business away from AUA since they began operations? This seems like a classic David vs Goliath story.

Not only SkyEurope. To a much bigger extent LCCs like Air Berlin, Germanwings and Germania have taken many pax from AUA´s Germany routes which were always selling very well with very high prices.
And with V-Bird and Helvetic Vienna gets more LCCs.....
What a pity for AUA.....

Plane Holland,

that is what I believe.
Many people think DLH will buy AUA if their situation gets worse. I don´t think so. DLH will not be that stupid to buy an airline with much too high operating costs and an outdated fleet of a/c. I don´t see DLH having any interest in any longhaul flights out of Vienna as Munich is just a stonethrow away.

What I could imagine though, is that DLH helps financially EWG to buy TYR to make them a member of Team Lufthansa for Eastern European destinations.

One thing is sure: If the pilot´s war doesn´t end soon, there will be many very sorry employees and much will change.....

Yep KA,

any airline would warmly welcome strikes by competitors, please come aboard our wonderful airlines. I might think Air Alps would take some of AUA's customers via AMS to their longhaul destination..

@Plane Holland,
you are completely wrong with A6 - only my opinion - they are almost the same idiots - high price and not-understandable routing, too (look at their timetable and look what they like to charge for - both to compare each other).

InterSky would be a nice idea, the first and last airline which is based in Austria I saw ever doing a understandable and nice job
not crazy low fares but payable one and direct flights to quite interesting destinations at a suitable time.

Jumbolino, I don't have a clue what's going on in Austria, just looking at the big picture  Smile

So, just my two cents.. but look at what strikes did to PR and SN, OS could be next, pilots just have to strike that last mile where there's no way back. As I said, any airline would be more then happy to immediately takeover their passengers , which has little to do with fares. Airlines always match in the long run or lower prices.

My advice to any pilot: try to keep your job instead of thinking you could get better, it ain't gonna happen these times. if you're not happy, quit your job but don't scare passengers, your bread, your income. !

@Plane Holland
with your 2 cents you're completely right - I'm just waiting for the day they will announce "sorry, but we have no money anymore"
on the other side LNZ, SZG and INN are (for long and mid-haul destinations, last mentioned even for shorthaul) close to Munich airport so since ages many people use their car to Munich and bring their money to the airlines based there .... same to VIE with Bratislava, which they will find out fully configured when Slovakia will join Schengen  Wink/being sarcastic

and of course a strike always make the situation even worse !

Jumbolino.
