Air France strike leaves angry passengers stranded
Unions representing flight attendants launched the strike on Thursday to demand better pay and conditions. It has been followed by more than three quarters of staff, unions say.

Management and unions met for four hours on Friday but failed to overcome their differences.

Air France has started legal action against three unions seeking 45 million euros (65 million dollars) in compensation for losses. It accused them of having failed to negotiate in the run up to the strike.
