Taiwan’s cabin crew strike has ended after China Airlines conceded to almost all of the demands by Taoyuan Flight Attendant Union. China Airlines was forced to cancel all flights out of Taipei last Friday, leaving thousands of travellers stranded at Taoyuan and Songshan airports. The Skyteam member has since issued a statement that it will reimburse all passengers' airfares, ground transportation costs, as well as accommodation and meals. The Taiwanese carrier will also offer US$100 in cash to all affected passengers too. Passengers should provide receipts for any related costs (including meals, accommodation and ground transportation) when applying for reimbursement. The airline said: “China Airlines is deeply sorry for causing passengers and travel agencies inconvenience due to the strike that had affected the normal operations of our flight schedules. We promise we will not let our partners bear the cost themselves.” For more information, visit Clement Huang
