MELBOURNE, Australia (Radio Australia, Feb. 9) - Air Niugini's flight attendants have voted to go on strike after failing to reach agreement with management over several demands.

But the Air Niugini Flight Attendants Association says the strike will not begin immediately as they are required by law to advise the Civil Aviation Authority of the result of the ballot and their planned action.

They also want to give the management of the national flag carrier more time to address their demands.

These include reinstating two members who were sacked and the provision of meal allowance for flight attendants serving international routes.

The National newspaper says if the strike goes ahead, the airline may be forced to ground its aircraft..
