TOKYO (Kyodo) -- All Nippon Airways Co. and its labor union agreed Tuesday on have 6,400 of its cabin attendants take several days of leave a month starting in April due to flight cancellations forced by the coronavirus outbreak, people close to the matter said.

    Full-time flight attendants of the airline known as ANA will take three to five days a month of partially paid leave for one year, they said.

    ANA has sharply cut domestic and international flights and is considering seeking around 100 billion yen ($920 million) of fresh loans from banks due to declining travel demand as the pandemic has forced the postponement of sports events, the closure of cultural and leisure facilities, and the cancellation of business and leisure trips.
