Hi. I hope nobody here is Flying Cyprus Airways on February 9th, The pilots will go on a 4 hour strike in protest at the Cypriot governments handling of the redundancy packages being offered. There will be many staff cuts and the airline hopes for a £50 million loan to help it restructure itself. There is talk of combining Euro Cypria flights with Cyprus Airways flights and even Helios made a late offer to merge all 3 airlines. For the time being, it looks like Cyprus Airways will restructure and survive, but many will lose jobs. Euro Cypria will carry on as normal, and Helios should be announcing a new name for the airline very soon, and a new colour scheme. Will keep you all posted as I have family living right near the airport at Larnaca, Regards Nordjet415
