In an in-depth article the impact of the increasingly widespread model of low-cost subsidiaries is analysed. The recent Air France-KLM dispute illustrates what the effect on labour legislation and social protection can be; expanding a low-cost subsidiary means cuts in pay and working conditions, or no expansion at all. The financial success of low-cost airlines is built on drastic cost cutting, especially when it comes to staff. In order to save on wages, social security contributions and employer contributions the use of self-employed workers as crew members is widespread.
