Union Pressures Malaysian Airlines To Defer A380

Mon Jun 19, 2006 5:56 pm

Forbes, the business magazine, has posted on its Website an article originating from AFX News reporting that a labor union in Malayasia representing about half the employees of Malaysian Airlines is pressuring the company to defer its purchase of A380's until the carrier has returned to profitability and other airlines have tried out the new aircraft. The airline had placed an order for six of the Airbus jets but said last week that it was reviewing the terms of its agreement in the wake of Airbus' recent announcement of a six to seven month delivery delay.
