Employees urge SAS to drop cheap flights

The largest labor union at SAS Braathens demands that SAS drops its cheap flights and allow Norwegian dominate the discount fare market.

«The economy really hasn’t improved since the merger of SAS and Braathens,» said Asbjørn Wikestad, leader of Luftfartens Funksjonærforening, to the Norwegian paper Dagsavisen. «We are battling daily to survive. If anyone says anything else, it is a case of excessive optimism.»

Wikestad wants that the CEO in SAS Braathens to end the sale of cheap flights. By doing this, Norwegian can have the discount travellers, and the two companies can develop two different markets. He claims that this is the best way for the two companies to make money.

In addition, Wikestad wants coffee and newspapers back onboard the SAS Braathens’ planes and he wants to revive the frequent flyer miles.

«This is about giving both companies separate conditions of competition,» Wikestad said. «When they all the time are competing for price, it’s not going well for either of them.»
