An ongoing strike by flight attendants of EVA Air will result in the cancellation of 911
flights from 24-28 June, which will affect more than 100,000 of its passengers who had
previous bookings for that period.
The airline said it will be able to maintain its transportation capacity at about 40 percent
over the next five days, but had stopped accepting new bookings since 21 June in order to
provide service to the 105,700 customers who had booked flights prior to the 20 June
strike for the 24-28 June period.
The Ministry of Transportation and Communications (MOTC) said it hoped the matter
could be resolved before 29 June, when the Taoyuan Flight Attendants Union is scheduled
to hold a vote on whether to continue the strike. There has been no indication, however,
that the privately owned airline will compromise on the main issues that led to the strike.
Delayed, disrupted flights
