Not So Quiet Riot....

A strike by airline staff does not normally lead to a riot but that's precisely what happened in Buenos Aires over the weekend after Aerolineas Argentinas babbage handlers and ticket desk staff demanded more money and refused to work. The passengers reportedly broke ticket counters and threw objects at the airline employees , after learning that their international flights were cancelled for the second day running.

The strike left several thousand passengers were stranded, including a woman who was scheduled to fly to Venezuela (can you imagine, all the way to Venezuela? - Ed)
