Lauda warned of job cuts if flight crews do not agree to changes that are needed to improve efficiency.

It's hard to be owned by Ryanair!

The airline is only a few months old, meeting terms of employment were agreed only months ago between employer and employee. It is fairly shocking that the employer is seeking to change the contracts so soon.

Lauda is expected to widen its losses in 2019 to $56 million to focus on expansion. The carrier expects to become profitable in 2020.

Lauda placed its A320neo order on the back burner and in the interim will lease three A320s.

Lauda will base three more A320s in Vienna and add more destinations in summer 2020 to Antalya, Bodrum, Dalaman, Dortmund, Kherson, Perugia, Rimini, Shannon, Varna, Warsaw-Modlin, Zaragoza and Zadar.

Lauda losses for 2019 now expected to be under US$80 million, as the carrier rapidly expands amid strong competition. Breakeven is still expected in 2020/21.
