Air France Says Flight Schedule Returning to Normal


Air France says its flight schedule is returning to normal Tuesday after flight staff called off their five-day strike over pay and working conditions.

Air France says it plans to operate all long-haul flights from Paris and 90 percent of its short and medium-haul routes. Labor unions representing cabin crews voted Monday to end the walkout.

Air France flight attendants began the work stoppage last Thursday on the eve of French school holidays. Hundreds of flights were canceled, stranding thousands of travelers.

Air France chief executive Jean-Cyril Spinetta has offered to hold immediate negotiations with the labor unions to avert further strike action.
