Avianca's Owner says there's a potential crisis heading towards the company

Link in spanish, sorry. Will do a recap here:

Within the article, he's still blaming the striking pilots who were looking for better economical options and benefits.
He also denies the company is on crisis (even tho the article and headline says the company is indeed in one), but uses a metaphor to minimize (and explain) the issue.

Also he reckons, among other things, that they decided to stop the non-profitable routes (which include the ORD ones that so many people here said they were profitable), selling the embraer planes from COPA, and renegotiating Airbus deliveries/payments.

In the end, he reckons the company is reacting to avoid entering a crisis.

So, he doesn't say it, but still says it.

Not a crisis. Crises!

Read the q &a talk about coming off combative.

If it gets worse, and I was Roberto Kriete, I'd bail the Central America subsidiary from the main company, if possible, and start searching for a new partner...Perhaps Volaris Costa Rica.
