Air France said it expects to operate 75% of its flights during Tuesday's strike, the first of several called in April over a wage row.

The airline, part of Air France-KLM (AF.FR), said it plans to operate 70% of its long-haul flights, 67% of its medium-haul flights to and from Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris and 85% of its short-haul flights from Paris-Orly and provincial airports. The company said it estimates that a third of its pilots, a fifth of its cabin crew and 15% of its ground staff will participate in this strike.

More strikes are scheduled for April 7, April 10 and April 11, following disruptions in March, as Air France struggles to reach a salary increase agreement with unions.
