Air France Cancels More Flights As Strike Continues


On Sunday, November 16, Air France passengers faced more cancellations as French pilots voted to press on with their demands and continue their strike. The agitation by the pilots has hit the national carrier hard with almost 35% of their long haul flights and half of all other files cancelled.

The pilots argue that the changes would put passenger safety at risk and damage prospects for young pilot
