Scandinavian Airlines cancel about 150 flights because of wildcat strike by cabin crew

Scandinavian Airlines canceled about 150 flights to and from Copenhagen as a wildcat strike by Danish cabin crew entered its second day.

Hundreds of passengers were stranded overnight at the Copenhagen airport after Danish cabin crew walked off their jobs Tuesday afternoon because of a labor dispute over working conditions, Danish broadcaster DR reported.

Scandinavian Airlines, or SAS, which called the strike illegal, canceled 113 flights Tuesday and 146 on Wednesday, SAS Denmark spokesman Mikkel Londahl said. The cancellations affected European routes and a handful of flights to and from Newark and Beijing, he said.

SAS officials said they hoped the striking workers would return to their jobs Wednesday afternoon after a meeting between leaders of the Danish Cabin Attendants Union and management representatives.

Scandinavian Airlines is the joint flag carrier of Sweden, Denmark and Norway. Flights operated by Norwegian or Swedish cabin crew were not affected by the strike.

The Basmanny Court of Moscow arrested Michael Calvey, the founder of Baring Vostok investment fund, on allegations of embezzling 2.5 billion rubles from Vostochny Bank. Calvey will be held in custody until April 13
