  • 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.

  • Japan prepares for domestic battles after deregulation

    News | 11 Mar 1998 00:00

    <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/
  • Cuts mar USA year

    News | 18 Feb 1998 00:00

    <p>Tim Furniss/KENNEDY SPACE CENTER </p> <p>The BOEING/Lockheed Martin United Space Alliance (USA) has had a successful first year as NASA's prime contractor for the Space Shuttle programme (see box), but it has been overshadowed by the need to lay off about 363 of its 6,000 workers at the Kennedy Space Center, Florida, because of NASA budget difficulties. </p> <p>NASA has overspent by about $200 million this year and has studied ways to make up the deficit. One of these is to save on payments to USA, by allowing the company to cut jobs. Despite the success of the USA, many at Kennedy have expressed their concerns about the effect of it laying off workers on 13 February, fears which have been echoed by some in the local community and by people further afield. There will also be 170 voluntary redundancies. </p> <p>With Shuttle safety paramount, observers fear that a Challenger-like scenario is being created, with the USA trying to do too much with less.
