The airline initially presented its Plan A, a raft of new productivity measures that would have required pilots to spend between 15 and 20 % additional time flying for the same fee. Unions protested that the increase was equivalent to six weeks of additional work without pay. At the same time as the pilots refused, the company rolled out Plan B – which included the loss of 2,900 jobs and flight cutbacks.
