Reports from French Polynesia say Air France is considering suspending flights to Tahiti because of strike action.

Flight attendants based in Tahiti stopped work last week, forcing the airline to cancel its Los Angeles-bound flight.

The plane left empty and today another plane left Tahiti empty.

Some passengers stranded last week are expected to fly out tonight on an aircraft leased from Air Tahiti Nui.

The head of Air France in Tahiti has told the local public broadcaster if no settlement is found, the route will have to be abandoned because it's not possible to bring in tourists whose return is not assured.
