Air France-KLM chief Jean-Marc Janaillac quits as staff reject pay deal



Air France-KLM chief Jean-Marc Janaillac has announced his resignation after French staff at the strike-hit airline rejected a new pay deal.

 
"I accept the consequences of this vote and will tender my resignation to the boards of Air France and Air France-KLM in coming days," he said.


In a ballot, 55% of the French employees rejected the deal.


Air France-KLM - one of Europe's biggest airlines - has seen a series of strikes in recent weeks.


The industrial action has cost the Franco-Dutch alliance millions of euros.
In the ballot, company employees rejected a 7% pay rise over the next four years.


They have been demanding a 5.1% increase in 2018 instead - in a dispute that began in February.
