Sorry, typo. I meant 2014 not 2016.
There are different readings of the 2014 pilot strike.
Despite some victory claims by AF management, the pilots won their major point. They blocked the Transavia Europe project.and showed that their strength was devastating. They did not get the "unique" pilot contract, but that was mostly symbolic.
They showed that they could co-manage the company's development.
AF management never risked to antagonize pilots again by hiring pilots under a different contract for Joon, making the lower cost concept for Joon somewhat unbalanced.
