Taipei, May 21 (CNA) FAT Taiwan Inc., one of Taiwan’s smaller airlines, canceled two morning flights between Taipei and Kinmen on Sunday after nine employees called in sick, but the airline would not say if the action amounted to a protest by the workers.
Flight FE065 flight from Taipei Songshan Airport to Kinmen scheduled to depart at 8:30 a.m had to be canceled because of a staff scheduling problem after nine people took sick or menstrual leave in accordance with company regulations, the airline said.
Consequently, return flight FE066 from Kinmen to Taipei, scheduled to take off at 10:10 a.m., was also canceled, the company said, noting that all of its other flights would operate as usual. [FULL STORY]
