MEA Pilots to go on strike for 48 hours!

Posted By :

MEA Pilots just announced that they will escalate their protests and go on a 48 hours strike as of tonight 10 pm. They seem determined to get the laid-off pilot back on duty.

I hope the MEA administration will come back from its decision as soon as possible and reinstate the pilot.

PS: The Lebanese Pilots Association is not demanding that the captain returns to fly, but they are only asking that this captain get his rights as described by the lebanese law; receive 2 months full salary and 2 months half salary on sick leave (via Meapilot)

    what’s funny is that they would’ve saved more money by giving this pilot a salary without even asking him to turn up to work than they do from not flying these planes for 48 hours.

    they deserve it and all it costs them.

      2 hours delay was a first warning. 48 hours strike is gonna hurt them real bad and it’s not like you can get replacement pilots the next day.

      i agree that that’s possible, but i’m sure MEA themselves would’ve responded with something at least… then again, companies can very often be slow to move.
