Hop!, the Air France’s short- and medium-haul low-cost subsidiary, plans to operate more than 80 percent of its flights on Thursday, July 13, the first day of a six-day pilot strike. Shuttle flights between Paris Orly and Nice, Bordeaux, Toulouse and Marseille will operate normally, Air France said. 

SNPL, the biggest of the three unions supporting the movement, has said that 57 percent of its members polled favour the stoppage. The dispute centres on working conditions, weekend and shift work, rather than salaries. 

Hop! operates 600 daily flights to about 50 destinations and carried more than 13 million passengers in 2016.
