The workers of Swissport, the world's largest ground and cargo handler, are striking because of low pay. Over 1,500 check-in staff, baggage handlers and cargo crew will walk out on 23 and 24 December.
And that's not all. British Airways cabin crew are also striking. After a row over pay and working conditions, a possible 4,500 cabin crew staff have voted to walk out on Christmas Day and Boxing Day.
