Air France predicts strike cost at $125

11/13/2008 PARIS The walkout has been called to protest the French parliament's upcoming discussion of a reform bill that could extend the retirement age for pilots from 60 to 65.

Spinetta told RTL radio on Thursday the measure will allow some pilots to keep flying after 60 and leave conditions for others unchanged.

Air France has said it expects nearly half of its 833 scheduled mid- and long-haul flights to be canceled Friday.
