Strike threat risks Tahiti flight changes

3:06 pm on 7 August 2012

Air Tahiti Nui has announced that it will bring its Los Angeles flight forward by half an hour in response to a strike threat by the French Polynesian flag carrier's cabin crew.

The airline says disruptions are possible because of the union action this week.

Negotiations over the weekend were unsuccessful and more talks are scheduled to settle the dispute.

The airline has not said what the contentious issues are.
