Pilots’ union SPG accused the company’s management of violating the agreed framework on Sunday. According to union boss Martin Lindgren, the flights are intended only for destinations where there are few or no alternatives to a return flight.

However, Lindgren said, “much to our surprise,” many of the flights went to popular vacation destinations such as Rhodes, Crete and Split. There are already alternative travel options. For this reason, SPG decided not to allow further exceptions after Sunday flights.
