Last month, in co-operation with one of the biggest airlines in the world, KLM, we launched flights on the route between Vilnius and Amsterdam," Parras added.
Some airlines have increasingly opted for the strategy of luring customers from neighboring markets to fly to their desired destinations via the airline's home base, at much lower prices than offered for direct flights fom the said home base in order to increase the number of passengers," remarked Parras.
Parras commented that while in the short-term perspective, airBaltic launching new routes from Tallinn would seem to be contrary to their long-term goal to multiply the number of air passengers via Riga, in the long-term perspective, there is already an example from Lithuania where the extra aggressive policy towards the competition, implemented by the Latvian airline, ended up in paralyzing Lithuania's local flight connections to the rest of the world for several months.
Parra was treated badly and did not receive a lot of opportunities and benefits that many other employees received.
Parra is asking $544,000 in compensation for lost wages and emotional distress, including anxiety, depression and grief.
