EgyptAir resumes flights following strike

EgyptAir resumed international flights on Friday after its flight attendants suspended a 12-hour strike pending negotiations. The airline had grounded international flights from Cairo on Friday from dawn when flight attendants stopped work after repeated negotiations to improve their work conditions failed. Some 20 international flights were cancelled before the strike was called off. Domestic routes were unaffected.
Cabin crew accuse the company of understaffing flights to cut costs and are also demanding an increase in their benefits and restructuring of their sector.
EgyptAir losses from the extended strike have been estimated at between $20 to $30 million.
