Do I have any forgotten? Seems that it will take a long time until airlines will have fully recovered. Traffic is expected to be back on pre-1th Sep level earliest in the second half of 2002. But then it will take much longer until the airlines have expanded to pre-attack employee levels.

Agreed....so what will you have then? Full airplanes, understaffed airlines, emyloyees forced to work overtime rather than recall the furloughed guys because it's cheaper, and "force majure" (can't spell it right) was used to get the ball rolling by ignoring union contracts....
A few months down the road it will be interesting to see how the airlines and the government interact with the loan program. I believe the government will want some control over the airlines they loan money to and how will they exercise this control.

The 2500 jobs lost at KLM are to be implemented by reducing the hours worked by 12000 employees and people leaving the company not being replaced.
There are no forced layoffs planned at this time. If the labour unions do not change their uncooperative stance on reducing pay increase next year forced layoffs in the future can not be ruled out.
