Bangladeshi pilots strike over plans to raise retirement age

Some 50 pilots serving in Bangladesh’s state-owned airline, Biman, called in sick after four colleagues were suspended in a row over plans to raise the retirement age and reduce benefits.

Biman flights have been severely disrupted by the protest, with passengers stranded at three international airports.

On Monday, Biman grounded four pilots accused of leading protests against the airline’s plans to raise pilots’ retirement age to 62 from 57 years and trim their benefits.

Reports said Biman officials, with previous flying experience, were being drafted in to prevent flights from being grounded.
