Passengers Suffer as SAS Pilot Strike Rumbles On

GROUNDED – SAS flights

SAS passengers continue to suffer as a strike by the Scandinavian Airline’s pilots remains unresolved after nearly a week.

Over 1400 SAS pilots went on strike last Friday over pay and working conditions.

This led to an estimated 70% of SAS flights cancelled in Scandinavia, Europe and worldwide, and 300,000 passengers affected by those cancellations.


Pilot representatives were engaged in wage negotiations with the airline yesterday , but as of today (Thursday May 2) no breakthrough has been made.

Mediator, Mats Wilhelm Ruland, last night, said:

“The situation is still very much deadlocked. The parties have not been able to agree,”

504 flights were cancelled yesterday (Wednesday) with 47,000 passengers impacted.


Anyone with a booking for SAS Airlines is advised to check flight status prior to airport departure as SAS customers have been left stranded around the world due to the strike.
