Qantas has apologised to its customers ahead of a major strike by two unions tomorrow.
The Transport Workers Union (TWU) and Australian Licenced Aircraft Engineers Association (ALAEA) will both down tools, affecting an estimated 8,500 domestic and international passengers. Qantas has been forced to delay 39 flights by up to an hour and cancel another two flights.
“We’re sorry that the TWU is taking their grievances out on our passengers over a pay dispute. We are doing everything we can to minimise the disruptions,” said Qantas executive, Olivia Wirth.
