KLM asks pilots to help out with other jobs

Airline KLM has asked its pilots and cabin crew to help out by doing other jobs during the summer peak period so spending on temporary staff can be cut.

The Telegraaf reported on Tuesday that pilots have been asked to deal with baggage and man the gates and lounges on a voluntary basis.
A spokeswoman for KLM said the reactions had been positive. ‘People feel involved and they like the idea,’ she said.
