PARIS (Reuters) - Pilots at Air France have voted in favour of strike action over pay conditions, the head of the SNPL union said on Monday.

The vote approved the principle of a lengthy strike but no date was decided, said the SNPL chief Philippe Evain.

It was not immediately clear whether the timing of a walkout by Air France pilots would coincide with the current wave of public transport protests and strikes being organised to protest against government plans for labour law reforms.
