  • Japanese aircrew strike grinds into its second week

    News | 21 Apr 1998 23:00

    <p><img src='../Assets/GetAsset.aspx?ItemID=778' /></p> <p>The strike by pilots and flight engineers over salary cuts at All Nippon Airways (ANA)is moving into its second week with no sign of an end to what is an almost unprecedented level of industrial action for Japan. </p> <p>By 17 April, the twelfth day, the number of cancelled international flights stood at 74, affecting some 15,300 passengers. ANA says that the action is costing it around ´200 million ($1.5 million)per day. </p> <p>Management and the union remain sharply divided over the new wage system, introduced at the start of April. It aims to link crew pay to actual hours flown, replacing a 26-year-old scheme in which pilots were paid for 65h a month regardless of actual flight hours . </p> <p>Management contends that a crew averages about 50h flying per month and hopes that the new system would cut labour costs by at least ´1 billion per year. </p> <p>"If management give in now, they'll have gained nothing.

    <p>Andrew Mollet/TOKYO </p> <p>The Japanese Government is preparing to deregulate domestic air fares in fiscal 1999 in a move that analysts say will serve to further stiffen competition in an already highly contested market. </p> <p>A draft report from a transport ministry panel has urged the lifting of restrictions that require airlines to keep prices within 25% of present ceilings. The recommendations are likely to be included in a final report at the end of this month. </p> <p>At the moment, the transport ministry approves fare ceilings based on cost, and airlines can set prices anywhere up to 25% below the maximum. The new system would simply require airlines to inform the ministry of their tariffs. </p> <p>Paul Smith, airlines analyst at James Capel, argues that a "price war will become almost inevitable: not only will the incumbents be fighting the start-ups such as Hokkaido International and Skymark, which will be competing on a platform of low prices, but they are already fhttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Japan-prepares-for-domestic-battles-after-deregulation-34126/
