Qantas cancels Australian flights due to strike

Qantas cancels Australian flights due to strike

A strike by Qantas Airways ground workers has thrown Australian domestic flights into chaos and affected the travel plans of more than 6,000 passengers.
Qantas spokeswoman Olivia Wirth says 28 flights have been canceled and another 27 delayed due to the strike that started early Tuesday. The Qantas schedule will return to normal Tuesday afternoon.
The Transport Workers Union spokesman Mick Pieri says staff are striking over pay and conditions.
Qantas says 11 flights from Sydney have been canceled, 10 from Melbourne, four from Brisbane, two from Canberra and one from Adelaide. Wirth says 6,100 passengers are affected.
