Aer Lingus Plagued by Strike

February 7, 2001

DUBLIN, Ireland (AP) _ A one-day strike by cabin crew canceled all but a handful of Aer Lingus flights Wednesday.

The airline said it was operating only about a dozen of its 160 scheduled flights because of the action by 1,300 employees represented by the Impact union.

The union plans another one-day strike on Friday in its dispute about working conditions.

The union has complained about longer working days, faster turnaround times, and a reduction of compensatory time off for overtime.

Meanwhile, British Midland said it was operating only four of its scheduled 16 services to Dublin Wednesday because of a strike by ground staff which began Monday.
