Malawi Airlines cabin crew strike delays  flight to South Africa

Dozens of passengers were affected Thursday in Lilongwe  because of a strike by Malawi Airlines employees who  downed their tools in protest against “unarranged” deductions to their November 2020 salaries which have been “unilaterally” effected by management.

Malawian Airlines cabin crew  strike

All Cabin Crew and other auxiliary staff converged at their head office at Golden Peacock in Lilongwe, baying for the CEO’s blood, and demanding answers to the unagreed deductions.

The strike affected the only weekly scheduled flight to Johannesburg from Kamuzu International Airport (via Blantyre) which was supposed to take off at 08:10 but was delayed.

“The 8:10am flight was disrupted by the strike,” said one of the workers.

Meanwhile, Malawi Airlines chief executive officer and other top brass officials were locked up in a discussion with the crew, but some striking staff could be heard vowing that they would not budge.

Fire these Staff members, by now they should realise that they have one airplane and hence need to work hard in order to grow the business. Leave striking to bigger airlines like Kenya or Ethiopia and southafrican.
