EASYJET faces the prospect of having to cancel half of its flights in France on Boxing Day due to a strike by flight attendants in a dispute over pay and working conditions.
Their walkout is to start on December 25, but as there are no flights scheduled for that day, the action will hit travellers flying on the 26th.
easyJet said it does not know exactly how many workers are to take part in the industrial action, but expects fewer than half of flights in France will be impacted,.
The airline employs 600 flight attendants among its 1,000 workers in France.
In Britain, talks between ground operator Dnata and the Unite union are expected to avert a strike by ground handlers next week.
Dnata handles ground handling for several airlines. The impact of industrial action would chiefly hit Heathrow and Manchester airports.
