Strikes in June to hit Europe flights

Travel chaos as France, Spain and Portugal flights hit
Hundreds of thousands of passengers face disruption as striking air-traffic controllers and refinery workers bring chaos to France’s transport network.
Aircraft travelling to, through and over France are being delayed or cancelled today, and  the union SNCTA now says it will also strike for a further four days – June 3 to 5 and June 14. Many flights between northern Europe and both Spain and Portugal are also being hit.
Air-traffic controllers are angry at proposed changes to working arrangements and retirement conditions and what they claim are low salaries. Thursday is the seventh day of walkouts by French air-traffic controllers in the past two months.
