PREVIOUS | Qantas has cancelled almost 30 domestic flights and has scheduled delayed departures for almost as many again, due to planned four-hour strikes by members of the Transport Workers Union during the morning and afternoon peak periods.

The airline has prepared a complete list of all cancelled and delayed flights, which can be downloaded as a PDF; passengers can also use the Flight Status took on Qantas.com.au to check on specific flights.

Over 6,000 passengers will be affected by the industrial action, which will see up to 3,800 baggage handlers, ground staff, catering, freight and other transport employees walk off the job.

The TWU has also imposed a 48 hour ban on "higher duties" involving paperwork and administration starting Tuesday September 20th which could also affect flights through to the end of this week.
