Tripoli, 4 April 2013:
Libya Airlines pilots based in Benghazi say they plan to go on indefinite strike as of . . .[restrict]tomorrow over demands that the company’s headquarters be moved back to the city. They say that negotiations on the issue have broken down with the carrier’s management which they accuse of “intransigence”.
A strike will cause some problems for the airline but will not stop the carrier’s flights in and out of the city unless ground staff join in.
There were plans to start the strike on Sunday, but this was held off for five days to enable further talks.
A protest at the Libya Airlines offices in Benghazi on Sunday attracted little support.
