The problem is that the people that choose to stay strike.
Those who strike today will leave tomorrow, if nothing changes, or not enough. They can, after all, pilots are in demand worldwide.
Add to that one of the reasons of strike is lack of crews. (and thus overfilled rosters)
Some have been leaving lately (especially contractors), looking for better wages and/or a more comfortable life. (quite often both at the same time)
So, how can this rosterproblem be solved?
1.hire more pilots (unlikely as costincreasing, especially when combined with higher salaries for current force)
2.have more flights done by 3d party airlines à la Cityjet,BMI
3. have more flights done by Eurowings-Gemany
4. Skip destinations
5. reduce frequency on some routes
6. in combination with the above,introduce some A321's with more seats on selected routes
Does that make sense? anything else to add?
