Aerolineas Argentinas suspended the international flights by lack of copilots and tens of passengers in the airport of Ezeiza already began to crowd together themselves.
Three international flights were cancelled yesterday and it is expected cancelling more flights today.
The reason is a new labour conflict between the company and the pilots union . According to sources the passengers have been relocated in other companies, but around 200 passengers they could not take its flights.
The situation was generated by `` the resignation of some pilots of the Airlines Pilots Association (APLA) to its condition of instructors, which prevents that they are accompanied by copilots with formation but without experience, as happened until now``. The flights affected until now, from Ezeiza, were: to Barcelona (to 22,30), to New York (to 23,25) and to Miami (to 2,15 of this Friday).
