Strikes: new Qantas timetable axes 10 Adelaide flights per week

By David Flynn, October 15 2011

Qantas will axe 10 Adelaide flights per week, starting this Monday October 17, due to ongoing industrial action.

The flight cancellations are part of Qantas' new temporary timetable, which the airline says will remain in place "for the next month due to Qantas grounding five aircraft as a result of a backlog of maintenance caused by industrial action by the Australian Licenced Aircraft Engineers Association."

"The union has had overtime bans in place since the start of September as well as an official instruction for its members to go-slow on day to day work" the airline said. "These bans are still in place and the union has indicated they will remain in place until at least Christmas."

Here is the complete list of cancelled Adelaide flights for the new Qantas timetable.
