EVA Air President Clay Sun took an apologetic tone after the announcement that a flight attendants’ strike would disrupt flights. At a press conference, Sun stood alongside other senior figures in the company and gave a bow.
The deputy senior vice president at the company’s operations management department said that only 14 of 36 flights scheduled for the first day of the strike would operate. All of Taiwan’s major airports will be affected.
