South African Airways (SAA) on Wednesday said a planned strike by unions would further endanger the future of the airline.
Unionised staff plan to down tools on Friday and on Saturday in protest against SAA’s restructuring plans.
These plans could lead to the national carrier cutting a fifth of its workforce.
Interim SAA chief financial officer Deon Fredericks said a strike would have a catastrophic impact on the airline if it went ahead.
He said passengers affected by the grounding of flights would be compensated.
“We will provide the refunds, our call centres are available for passengers to contact to make alternative arrangements and we ask our customers to call their agents and they can go to our website as well.”
