Emirates Airline Cancels Two Flights Due To UK Strike

Emirates Airline said Monday it had canceled two flights on its Dubai-London route ahead of a planned public sector strike in the U.K on Wednesday.
"Due to the announced strike of the U.K. Border Control Authority at all U.K. airports on the 30th November, Emirates has unfortunately had to cancel EK029, Dubai to London Heathrow, and the returning EK030," said a spokesman for Dubai-based Emirates.
Abu Dhabi-based Etihad Airways earlier Monday said it had canceled three flights on its London-Abu Dhabi route ahead of the nationwide public sector strike in the U.K., which is likely to cause chaos at the world's busiest international airport.
