Air France cancels quarter of its flights

More misery for travellers in France as Air France cancels a quarter of its flights after a strike by staff.

Just 70 percent of long-haul flights and 80 percent of the airline's medium-haul flights are running.

While passengers whose flights are still scheduled can also expect delays.

Unions want a six percent pay rise across the board to make up a loss of their spending power in recent years due to stagnating wages.

Management is offering a basic increase of one percent to be paid in two installments and a range of incentives, but these have been rejected by the unions.
