He mentioned the crew of pilots and cabin affected by rescheduled flight (resdapedule) which is about 800 people.
"Once that happens we need to 'reschedule' the cabin crew and the cockpit and need to be done together, our system is constrained so that the peak of the crew decrease due to the airport is closed, we have difficulty doing the assignment in time," he said.
