PARIS, July 14 (Reuters) – Air France KLM’s (AIRF.PA) low-cost unit Transavia said on Thursday it was canceling around 25% of its French flights due to a protest strike among certain members of staff about wages and working conditions.

Dozens of flight attendants, hostesses and stewards have been on strike since Wednesday, said the national union of cabin crew SNPNC, which plans to extend its actions until July 17.

The SNPNC wants a comprehensive pay review next January, adding that the latest relief measures proposed by management to deal with soaring inflation have not been enough.

Management said it plans to hold discussions on the topic early next year.
