Spanish airline Iberia cancels 40 percent of its scheduled flights when workers go on strike to protest against job cuts.

The loss-making airline said that 415 of the 1,060 flights scheduled over the five days would be grounded, though 90 percent of long-distance flights will take off. Domestic flights will be most affected, with almost half being cancelled.
