To Air France cabin crew unions SNPNC and Unsa PNC have participated in the three day strike.

 

The airline had expected to maintain 90 percent of flights on Monday, including all long-haul flights and 92 percent of medium-haul ones, but they had also warned of last minute cancellations.

 

Air France had said that “some flights may be cancelled” and that the reduced crew means that passenger numbers may be limited, so the company “may not be able to honour all reservations”.

Passengers booked out of Orly Airport can postpone their trip at no extra cost through March 28, 2017. The airline has also offered non-refundable vouchers on Air France, KLM or HOP! for Orly passengers who choose to cancel their flights.
