Air France to delay some cost cuts in a bid to avert a planned strike by cabin crew: reports

Air France has reportedly proposed delaying some cost cuts in a bid to avert a planned strike by flight attendants (Les Echos, 19-Mar-2010). The proposal includes delaying 200 job cuts for a year. Air France’s flight attendants have stated they would stage a four-day strike between 28-Mar-2010 and 31-Mar-2010, in protest at the company's EUR54 million austerity plan, as part of which the airline plans to increase short and medium-haul productivity by 20%. The walkout coincides with the second group of British Airways strikes on 28-Mar-2010, with TAP Portugal's pilots also planning a walk out from 26-Mar-2010 to 31-Mar-2010.
