    Background: INTRODUCTION: Air traffic into and out of the three main international airports in Paris, France, came to a halt on Friday (18 March) during a strike by firemen. Under airport safety regulations, firemen must be in attendance.

    SYNOPSIS: The flights were suspended after the firemen went on strike in an overtime dispute. A Concorde was among the aircraft grounded by the move.

    Airlines had been warned that their aircraft would take off and land a their own risk. The strike arose when firemen protested against plans to increase their staff for security reasons. They said the move would mean a substantial cut in their overtime payments. It wasn't until Saturday that traffic returned to normal. Airport authorities said they had reached a settlement with the striking firemen. Details of the settlement were not available.
