Airlines Cry Foul as Troubled Dutch Hub Says Jets Can’t Fly Full

Airlines serving Amsterdam Schiphol airport said the hub’s move to cut capacity amid staffing shortages has seen it pressure them to switch to smaller planes or leave seats empty.

Air Serbia has been asked to reduce occupancy levels by about 28% on flights to Belgrade from July 7, it said in an email. Latvia’s AirBaltic Corp AS said Tuesday it has also been asked to curb passenger loads on outbound services from the Dutch base.
