Iberia workers have begun the second round of five day strikes in protest at plans by holding company IAG (International Consolidated Airlines Group), formed by the 2011 merger of Iberia and British Airways, to implement redundancies and pay cuts across the troubled Spanish airline. The strike is estimated to cause the canceling of almost 1,300 flights this week, with a final round of five day strikes planned for March 18 to 22. (Photo by Denis Doyle/Getty Images)
