Travel ceases as multiple airlines strike

International business travel looks to be made more difficult with
the employees of Air France,
TAP Air Portugal and Lufthansa announcing
their intentions to strike.

Airline officials, opposing the proposed strikes, say they are
restructuring or implementing
cost-cutting measures in order for
their companies to survive, however, the union member say they are working in unfair working
conditions.

Air
France’s disruption will start on 28
March for possibly four days, when crews on short- and medium-haul flights intend to walk off the job.

If no
comprise is made before March 28, the action will correlate with the second
British Airways strike meaning all
services serving France, Europe, Moscow, North Africa and Israel will be
affected.

TAP
pilots says airline officials are using “unacceptable tactics” to reduce
operational costs and are refusing to work between 26 and 31 March and
Lufthansa, who discontinued a planned four-day strike in February, will
resume their action from 13 to 16
April, after a standstill in negotiations.
