Estonian Air pilots may go on strike

Estonian Air has a problem in that it has inherited the culture of a state enterprise with unproductive work routines supported by unions who know the state so far has always given in when it comes to the national flag carrier.

If it has any hope of surviving beyoud government subsidies, then it must adopt the work practice of other low cost airlines and we could be in for a messy fight and cancelled flights as the management battles for a reasonable solution Reply to the comment answer

The globalized free market is the dream of some, the nightmare of many.
Low cost carriers only survive by all kinds of advantages they get, skimming off the tax payers in a different way.
It is time to pay the management what the pilots earn and give them a bonus every seven years after evaluation.
Maybe a new price policy can help to fill the airplanes: let all passengers in economy pay the same price for their ticket, only add 7% for last minute booking.
Think about SAS+FINEST as a group... Reply to the comment answer

The free and private market place is not the issue here, but government intervention at heavy costs for the taxpayers that should be used for something else (kindergartens, schools, fixing our streets and everything else what's wrong with Estonia's infrastructure). Under free market conditions, EA would not exist anymore, for years. Reply to the comment answer
