Swiss International Air Lines has temporarily suspended 52 Saab 2000 pilots on the grounds that their anxiety about their future with the company could affect cockpit safety. The company has started disciplinary proceedings against the pilots, who had complained in an open letter to management. The 52 pilots will undergo an assessment of their flying abilities. If they pass, the pilots will resume their duties. (swissinfo)
