EgyptAir strike comes to an end

Sept. 8, 2012 at 4:29 PM   |   Comments

CAIRO, Sept. 8 (UPI) -- A strike by EgyptAir cabin crew members ended after a presidential representative promised to meet their demands for better working conditions and insurance.

The airline resumed international flights after the announcement was made Friday evening, Ahram Online reported. Domestic flights had not been affected.

The strike began Friday morning, with cabin staffers demanding better work conditions, insurance and an increase in staff numbers. All of EgyptAir's international flights were grounded during the walkout.

Legal consultant Mohamed Fouad, who represented President Mohamed Morsi, met with the strikers Friday afternoon, and then said EgyptAir was willing to give in to the cabin crew members' "legitimate demands."

Changes at EgyptAir will be implemented following the appropriate legal procedures, Fouad said.
