JAKARTA -- The pilots association of Garuda Indonesia is threatening to launch a strike if the government fails to meet its demands for management changes within the next month, as cost-cutting measures at the loss-making flag carrier seem to be backfiring.

All association members, who represent approximately 90% of Garuda's 1,500 pilots, would join the strike, their latest attempt to have the board of directors reduced from eight members to six.
