Qantas strike action cancelled

Qantas has welcomed the decision by the Australian
Licensed Aircraft Engineer’s Association (ALAEA) to cancel its proposed
strike action for tomorrow, Friday 16 May, and Friday 23 May.The Chief Executive Officer of Qantas, Mr Geoff Dixon, said that although
the decision had come too late for the airline to reverse the cancellation
of its services tomorrow, Qantas was now able to add back capacity and keep
disruption to a minimum.

“We had already advised and rebooked passengers travelling on flights
tomorrow afternoon, but will now move to add four supplementary
Sydney-Melbourne services to restore capacity,” Mr Dixon said.
