Italian airline Alitalia cancelled 95 domestic and international flights, with Air Italy expected to cancel many more as Italian air transport unions called strikes over contracts. Alitalia employees began a four-hour strike yesterday afternoon (March 25), while Air Italy went on strike for 24 hours. Most of the affected Alitalia flights were between Italian cities and other cities within Europe, with long-haul flights escaping the disruption. Alitalia implemented a plan for affected passengers to be booked onto alternative same-day flights.
