AF-KLM lay final cards at the table
08 / 04 / 2008
AT an Air France-KLM board of directors meeting, Jean-Cyril Spinetta informed members of the situation resulting from the breakdown in talks between Air France-KLM and the unions representing the different Alitalia employee categories.
The board of directors took note of the breaking off of talks, and understood and approved the reasons for this situation.
It was considered that the plan submitted by Air France-KLM on 14 March and subsequently amended during negotiation meetings on 18, 25, 31 March and 1 and 2 April, was the only one that would enable Alitalia to return to profitable growth within a rapid timeframe.
It is now up to Alitalia, its employees and unions representing staff, to say how they view the future of their airline.
