Swiss International

Swiss International flight operations back to normal. Swiss European pilots returned to flight duties this morning. Although a further 14 morning flights had to be cancelled as a direct consequence of yesterday's strike, Swiss flight operations are now completely back to normal. The strike organised yesterday by the Swiss Pilots union severely impaired SWISS flight operations in Europe. The effects of the strike carried over to this morning with the cancellation of another 14 flights. In total, Swiss was forced to cancel 142 flights (or 71 round trips) within Europe. Sep 27, 2006
