SAS, a Scandinavian Airline, Files for Bankruptcy Protection Amid Pilot Strike



Scandinavian airline SAS AB has filed for bankruptcy protection in the U.S., saying a move by about 1,000 of its pilots to go on strike would worsen its already fraught finances—becoming one of the first casualties during a chaotic recovery in air travel.

The company on Tuesday said it would continue to operate during the voluntary restructuring process but the staff walkout would lead it to cancel around 50% of its flights daily. SAS said it expects the Chapter 11 court process to last between nine and 12 months.
