Frederic Gagey told France Info radio the strike in the middle of the summer holiday season has had a "very negative impact on Air France's image".

The company plans to operate all long-distance flights on Tuesday, the last day of the strike.

About 10% of domestic flights and 15% of European flights to and from Paris Charles de Gaulle airport are cancelled.

Air France's cabin crew are protesting against a further decrease in staff numbers and poor working conditions.
