A daily Air France flight from Bastia to Paris-Orly is schedulded at 06h00 since last week but for the labour CGT this schedule is very too early for the travellers and the workers. So the employees still begin their service at 05h45 which generate a one hour delay everyday.

Quoting slclaxkixkhh (Reply 1): Why do they keep that schedule if the workers always arrive too late to get the flight out on time?
So the airlines have to create their timetables based on the employees' moods ?
Quoting slclaxkixkhh (Reply 1): If the schedule is too early for the travellers, are the loads low for that flight?
According to the labour, the loads are indeed low. The Air France losses in the short-medium range sector are huge and the airline is trying to copy the low cost carriers' model. The first thing to do is to use the airliners as much as possible during the day, so the first movement at 07h00 seems by far too late.
