What would you do if you were an airline pilot and instead of working with the pilots management just created another airline? You think thats fair?
The company is trying to hurt the pilots. The pilots have very little to fight back with if management isnt playing fair.
Sorry it hurts the customers but this is the management's fault, not the pilots.
I would agree with you if these were normal economic times. Thing is, Spain is in its worst economic shape since their Civil War and at times like these, a company needs to do whatever it takes to survive. The number of companies going under in Spain on a daily basis is far out there and their unemployment rate, already one of the highest in the world keeps rising.
Everyone in Spain is hurting and suffering, and things won´t get better soon. Everyone is doing their part. If it takes to build a new airline to survive, then so be it. As far as the company trying to "hurt the pilots" that is just ludicrous. When were these things personal?
The only people being hurt here are the IB
pilots, by their own hand. Brinkmanship is never a good negotiating tactic, unless one part has the winning card and knows it. The IB
pilots don´t have it. They keep at this, IB
will become an LCC without them. Wether it´s called IB
or whatever. Remember MX? No airline is indispensable.
As for your assertion about the customers, you don´t seem to have a good idea about service industries, nor any regard for those who actually pay. I´m surprised, as you are an actual airline pilot.
There are many ways to get to MAD
was never a good airline, servicewise and are known for those bound to Europe (among those who have a choice) to be the airline to avoid. Heck, AM
´s C service is not SQ
grade but I´ll take them anytime over IB
. Now this crap? Talk about a union shooting itself on the foot.
Desperate times call for desperate measures. SEPLA needs to get that.[Edited 2012-02-17 00:40:47]
