Strikes Disrupt Schedules at Air France & SAS

Airline passengers in Europe are being forced to navigate disruptions from labor conflicts at two of the continent’s biggest carriers this week. Labor actions at Air France and Scandinavian airline SAS likely have already disrupted the plans of more than 100,000 combined passengers since Friday. As the actions continue into Monday SAS canceled 230 flights for the day and Air France planned to operate 85% of its long haul flights, 85% of its domestic flights, and 72% of its medium-haul flight to and from Paris – CDG. SAS said most of its U.S. and other long-haul routes would operate as scheduled. But U.S. customers planning to connect to other European destinations on SAS should check ahead on the status of those flights. Teplis Travel has been contacting affected passengers directly to assist them with rebooking. Adding to the mess could be a Tuesday strike of easyJet pilots at the discount carrier’s base in Amsterdam.
