A stewardess looks on November 24, 2011

A stewardess looks on November 24, 2011 at the departures panel, showing all flights cancelled, at Lisbon international airport during a general strike. A general strike against austerity measures grounded flights and paralyzed public transport in Portugal on November 24 as workers protested a tough 2012 budget aimed at helping the country pay its debt. Authorities cancelled nearly all flights in and out of the nation's main airports, the Lisbon metro came to a standstill and ferries across the capital's Tagus River functioned only intermittently in what unions said was a necessary bitter pill.
