Air France tweaks Tahiti schedule amid strike threat

12:05 pm on 15 August 2012

Air France has made slight changes to tomorrow's flight schedule in and out of French Polynesia because of a strike threat by Tahiti firefighters.

The airline has brought forward the arrival of its flight from France by half and hour and also changed the departure time of the return trip.

The latest disruptions come only days after a cabin crew strike at Air Tahiti Nui prompted flight cancellations.

The flight-related problems have caused concern in the tourism sector which is struggling to recover from years of decline.
