COPENHAGEN (REUTERS) - Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) cancelled some 60 flights going to and from Copenhagen Airport on Saturday after members of SAS' Danish cabin staff walked out in protest over working conditions, the airline said.

SAS said it had signed an agreement with the Cabin Attendants Union (CAU) that required the staff to resume work.

But a CAU spokesman told Danish TV channel TV2 News that the union had not convinced its members to go back to work.
