The night negotiations between the parties in the pilot strike has failed.

This means that the strike will continue on Monday.

At 1:30 pm the night of Monday sent Carriers, which represents employers, issued a press release that evening and night negotiations have stalled.

According to Mattias Dahl, CEO of Swedish airline industry, SAS accepted the mediators’ proposals. Swedish Pilots’ Association, however, said no.

Now he directs harsh criticism towards the slot.

– We have accepted the bid that we received from the government mediators. Pilot union says no, demand more and throws constantly new requirements. I have never seen anything like it, said Dahl in the release.

The stalled negotiations means that 230 flights is set for Monday. About 27 000 passengers affected.

SAS has advised against its travelers from going to the airport if they have a set rate. Notification to customers via SMS or on the company website.

– Have you got their flights canceled should book about it or alternatively ask for a refund, says Fredrik Henriksson, Head of SAS Sweden, on Sunday.

According to Jacob Pedersen, an analyst at Danish Sydbank, can the strike cost the SAS tens of millions every day.

– It’s all about at least the levels of double-digit million range, he said.

SAS itself would not comment on how much the strike will cost SAS.

– Obviously it’s a big expense. But our focus right now is to help the people whose flights are set, what it costs, we can count on afterward, says Fredrik Henriksson.
