Taipei, June 23 (CNA) An ongoing strike by flight attendants of EVA Air will result in the cancelation of 911 flights June 24-28, which will affect more than 100,000 of its passengers who had previous bookings for that period, the Taiwanese carrier said Sunday.

The airline said it will be able to maintain its transportation capacity at about 40 percent over the next five days, but had stopped accepting new bookings since June 21 in order to provide service to the 105,700 customers who had booked flights prior to the June 20 strike to travel in the period June 24-28.

The airline said it will put some of the passengers on its flights that are still in operation and will try to find alternative flights on other airlines for other customers.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Transportation and Communications (MOTC) said it hoped the matter could be resolved before June 29, when the Taoyuan Flight Attendants Union is scheduled to hold a vote on whether to continue the strike.    [FULL  STORY]
