But, seriously, pilot action or threats thereof , have rarely been effective with any airline
That is utter rubbish. Airlines sit up and listen when the threat of a strike is real and they do what they can to avoid it. Discussing the finer points of the power plays in industrial relations will take hundreds of pages but collective bargaining works and the stick behind collective bargaining is industrial action. That is a fact. Anything else is people putting their broader politics ahead of the realpolitik.
