Jumbolino, I don't have a clue what's going on in Austria, just looking at the big picture
So, just my two cents.. but look at what strikes did to PR
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. !
