The flag carrier of Denmark, Norway and Sweden says more than 170,000 passengers have been affected since the open-ended strike started on Friday. The strike began after the collapse of pay negotiations with the SAS Pilot Group, which represents 95% of the company’s pilots in the three countries.
There is no sign of when talks might resume on a new collective bargaining agreement.
Jacob Pedersen, an analyst with Denmark’s Sydbank, says the pilots want their share of company earnings after the carrier posted a profit in the past four years following a cost saving programme that started in 2012.
