Iberia Is Cancelling All Their Flights!

Fri Jul 13, 2001 5:20 am

On the dutch television text:
The spanish airliner Iberia is cancelling all their flights at 0.00 o'clock. This is due to the resignation of 99 pilots, which are unhappy of the raise of 20 % of their wages, which was promised in 1995, when Iberia was in financial troubles.

See (in dutch  Sad ) :

Since I'm a lugage loader at EBBR for the month of July (as a student, you see...) this will only mean less work for me...and no nice views of the Spanish female FA's..

These 99% pilots have been hired again and Iberia is flying - just a few hours after grounding!
