They protest against the lack of progress in matters such as pensions or flight times
Brussels Airlines pilots have been taking ad hoc actions since Monday to protest against the lack of progress on issues such as pensions or flight times. According to the Christian and Liberal trade unions, the company’s planes take off with a delay of 15 to 20 minutes.
“The actions come from the pilots themselves but are covered by the three unions,” explained Paul Buekenhout (LBC / CNE) and Filip Lemberechts (CGSLB / ACLVB).
According to the latter, in addition to pension and flight times, the integration of the Thomas Cook Airlines Belgium pilots and the Eurowings issue (for which Brussels Airlines will operate long-haul flights from Düsseldorf) are still on the table.
