No Qantas delays

QANTAS passengers will not face delays today after the Transport Workers Union ruled out further strike action, saying people had been "inconvenienced enough".

More than 6000 domestic passengers across Australia faced delays yesterday because of a strike by more than 4000 of the airline's ground staff over pay and conditions.

Union spokesman Mick Pieri said he believed the strikes, which workers had threatened to continue for 48 hours after walking off the job yesterday morning, had sent "a pretty good message".

"It's up to Qantas now," he said.

"We think the public has been inconvenienced enough."

Delays yesterday ranged from five min

utes to 35 minutes, the Qantas website said, and all passengers on flights delayed more than 15 minutes were contacted by the airline.
