Scandinavian carrier SAS AB continued talks with pilot unions on Saturday with the strike that has grounded most of its flights during the peak holiday season poised to enter a third week. 

A spokesman for the SAS and a spokeswoman for the Swedish Pilot Union both confirmed the talks were continuing Saturday. Neither indicated whether the two sides were any closer to an agreement.
