Hop! pilots strike over holiday weekend

Pilots with French airline Hop! are set to go on strike over the Bastille Day weekend in France after discussions between the company and trade unions on improving working conditions fell through. The strike is scheduled for July 13-18, but Hop! has assured travellers that “more than 80 percent of flights” will be running on Thursday, the first day of the strike.

“The flights at risk of being disrupted are those that are carried out by regional planes,” the company said. “The flights carried out by Airbus and Navette planes will be operating as normal during this period.”
