Airline Workers Demonstrate Against 'Open Skies'


Employees of Israel's major airlines demonstrated, Friday morning, outside the homes of Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz and Treasurer Yair Lapid in protest of the "open skies" agreement deregulating air travel to the European Union.

Israeli airlines will strike, starting Sunday morning at 5:00, because of fears that the new agreement will result in massive layoffs.
