Strike action in Tahiti affects Air France flight

9:42 am on 11 November 2017

A strike at Air France in French Polynesia has prompted the airline to cancel today's flight to Paris.

The stoppage came after last minute negotiations between the carrier and its flight attendants in Tahiti failed.

Air France has offered to accommodate stranded passengers in hotels.

The strike is the latest in Tahiti this week.

The local power company EDT has gone on strike and since the beginning of the week, hospital doctors have been on strike over remuneration disputes.
