How French pensioners can raise airfare prices…


Flights have been cancelled again as France is hit with another strike by air traffic controllers. The pension disruption has already cost Ryan air 1200 flights and British Airways confirms there is likely to be delays with some flights to and from France.

French airlines have also stated that these strikes and fuel protests have cost them more than the Icelandic volcano disaster.

Airlines have been advised to reduce flights to Paris by 50% and by 30% to all other French airports.

Although this only immediately affects passengers to France, if the dispute is settled quickly then it shouldn’t have much of an effect on other European flights. However the dispute may continue for months or even frequently throughout the year and with fuel being the biggest overhead for airlines they may start to build this into the price of tickets.
