Swiss suffered a first-quarter net loss of SFr200 million ($151 million) and is estimated to be losing more than SFr3 million a day.
Under the court ruling, which will be retroactive to April 1 last year, Swiss must either re-employ the sacked Crossair pilots or make a proportional number of former Swissair pilots redundant.
Future redundancies must also be applied equally to pilots from Crossair and Swissair, which merged to form Swiss.
ï¿½Three weeks ago Swiss rejected a [similar] proposal; however, now itï¿½ll be law and all redundancies must be made proportionally,ï¿½ said Martin Gutknecht, board member of Swiss Pilots, which represents former Crossair pilots.
