Air New Zealand is mulling whether to sue Qantas over money it lost when the Australian company’s engineers went on strike, the Sydney Morning Herald has reported.
The wild-cat strikes, which lasted for 10 weeks, ended last July but left a backlog of work that lasted for months.
The strike also forced Air New Zealand to relocate some of its engineers to Australia temporarily to work on aircraft.
Air New Zealand is a major customer of Qantas and uses it for a range of services in Australia such as check-in and aircraft preparation.
An Air New Zealand spokesman said the airline would be making a decision next week on whether to take legal action but wouldn’t go into costs, which the Sydney Morning Herald reported to be in the millions.
Air New Zealand was also disrupted by a Qantas baggage handlers strike in March.
