The KLMuk pilots have been pushed around for years, and this was one push too far! Sometimes you have to stand and fight, and yes you might lose. Everyone ( well nearly ) at KLMuk chose to stand togeather, and with the support of the mainline pilots at KLM, fought our corner. We all knew the risks. We did not have a rediculous claim, just a fair one! And it looks like we have got a fair deal.
Leftarmover expressed exactly our sentiments on folks who have left, making smart**se comments like A.VIATOR'S and it is obvious that they do not wish us well, because if all comes good at Schiphol, then their decision to jump ship, might not be the one they thought they made!
I have best regards for the people that left Air uk, we wish them well, but those that chose to stay, might just have a good future too! KLM is one of the best airlines in the world, and you don't have to sell your soul and live in a dessert as a second class citizen either!!!

I would like to congratulate my colleagues at KLM UK for achieving a righteous settlement. As a KLM mainline pilot I can only say that I feel it is well deserved. In our union forum there was overwhelming support for your stance. I now hope that after all these years of uncertainty and downsizing you are all headed for better times. Looks like BUZZ will become a sizable airline in its own right. And the new KLC/KLC UK will be a major regional airline. Hope the hard feelings towards KLM will lessen over time, remember none of it was personal, and the group as a whole will come out of this chapter stronger. Regards, O.

ps. Thanks to the KLM UK colleagues who took time out to enlighten me on the issues involved, during the past six months.

buzz strike.

I see buzz are striking over 2pc wage increase.
Does anyone know what they were actually demanding from the company which would satisfy the pilot workforce.
