Strike action in Iberia for Monday and Tuesday
Flights out of Madrid will be those most affected
Iberia company has been forced to cancel some 400 flights on Monday and Tuesday as cabin crew call strike action as their TCP union demand increased wages.
The flights affected are those which connect Madrid with other European cities such as Lisbon, Paris, London, Brussels, Amsterdam and Frankfort, and also on the domestic routes to Andalucía, Valencia, Basque Country, Asturias, Galicia and Barcelona.
Flights using series IB5000, IB 7000 and IB8000, operated by Vueling, Air Nostrum and other code sharing companies will not be affected, and flights to both the Balearics and the Canaries are expected to run as normal.
A second round of similar stoppages is set for November 10 and 11.
Meanwhile, plans announced by Iberia to create a new short and medium haul airline, where they can pay pilots less and reduce other costs, have not been well received by current workers. The plans include a wage freeze to 2012.
