NAIROBI Oct 17 Pilots at Kenya Airways
have halted plans to strike this week, a source at the
airline said on Monday, after a court ruled last week that the
action was illegal and the company said a stoppage would further
hurt the loss-making airline.
"It is deferred," the source told Reuters when asked about
the indefinite strike that had been due to start on Tuesday. The
source did not give further details.
The pilots union KALPA had called the to protest against the
management of the airline, which is part owned by the government
and Air France KLM.
