Strike action by cabin crew: traffic forecast for Sunday 19 March 2017


Air France expects to operate more than 90% of its flights:

  • 100% of its long-haul flights
  • 90% of its medium-haul flights
  • 85% of its domestic flights  

38% of cabin crew intend to strike on 18 March

Air France teams are mobilized to assist customers

Following the call for strike action which has been confirmed by certain Air France cabin crew unions for the period from Saturday 18 to Monday 20 March 2017, the schedule of flights operated by Air France aircraft will be slightly disrupted.

Air France regrets this situation and is making every effort to minimize the inconvenience this strike action may cause to its customers.

Today, Saturday 18 March 2017, operations at Paris-Charles de Gaulle are currently running in line with the forecast announced yesterday. Our operations at Paris-Orly are disrupted as traffic has been suspended due to the security incident that occurred this morning at Orly Sud.

TRAFFIC FORECAST FOR SUNDAY 19 MARCH 2017

On Sunday 19 March 2017, Air France expects to operate 100% of its long-haul flights, 90% of its medium-haul flights and 85% of its domestic flights, taking into account a strike participation rate of 38% of cabin crew staff beginning their duties on that day.

However, there may be last-minute cancellations and delays. Difficulties with crew compositions may also limit the number of passengers per flight.

The flight schedule for 19 March is being updated.

For Monday 20 March, depending on the estimated number of cabin crew taking strike action, the flight schedule will be adapted and published the day before, and customers will be informed accordingly.
Please note that Air France flights operated by aircraft from another airline, including HOP! are not affected by this strike action.
