Iberia Express strike — What are Iberia Express cabin crew demands?
Iberia Express cabin crew, according to the two unions USO and SITCPLA, are demanding better working conditions and higher wages due to inflation.
"We are very disappointed in the management of Iberia Express, which has shown that it does not keep its word and has no respect for workers who have struggled to keep the company afloat," the unions said.
Will my flight be delayed or cancelled due to Iberia Express striking?
For now, we know that the Iberia Expres strike will last 10 full days, from August 28 to September 6.
Regarding the impact on flights, the airline unions did not yet communicate the extent of the strike. Putting into consideration strikes from Ryanair and easyJet in Spain earlier this month, we need to prepare for flight disruptions all across Europe.
