FlashNews - Air France Strike
Paris:- Saturday, 6. June 1998:- 11:00:- The sixth day of the strike by Air France pilots gets underway with a maximum of about one flight operating out of four scheduled for today.
Talks last night ended early the morning when pilots' union representatives walked out. Air France management said advances had been made. At the moment, no new talks are planned.
Foreign airlines are serving French airports normally and other French carriers - AOL, Air Liberty and Fairlines - have added temporary extra aircraft to their fleets.
The pilots' official 'strike warning' is slated to last until 15. June, and is renewable. Air France management said that flights contracted to move World Cup teams from city to city for their matches will not be affected by the strike.Violent Weather
