Tuesday 2 August 2016 marked the seventh and last day of the strike action by cabin crew.

On Wednesday 3 August 2016, Air France expects the flight schedule to return to normal.

“However, there may be some last-minute disruptions on this first day following the strike”, the airline said in a statement.

Negotiations with the Cabin Crew Unions are expected to resume this month.

In total, close to 1,400 flights were cancelled during the seven days of strike action and approximately 180,000 customers were affected. The direct cost of the strike is estimated at over 90 million euros.

“More than 7,500 Air France agents did all they could at the call centers, ticket offices and at outstations to provide solutions to customers and to minimize the inconvenience caused. The commitment of ground staff and crews enabled Air France to maintain more than 80% of short and medium-haul flights and more than 90% of long-haul flights. More than 70% of affected customers were offered alternative solutions before the departure of their flight”, the airline added.
