Flight cancellations to continue for Korean Air

28 Dec 2016 by Craig Bright

Korean Air flights continue to be affected by the Pilots Union Strike, which first saw the airline forced to cancel flights to Hong Kong, Japan and the Middle East over the Christmas weekend.

While the service has now resumed on the majority of flights first affected by the strike, Korean Air has announced that its KE961 and KE962 flights operating on its Incheon-Riyadh-Jeddah route will continue to experience cancellations in the beginning of January.

As previously, passengers on affected flights can change their flights at no additional cost to the destination or refund their tickets with no penalty.
