PARIS (Reuters) - Unions at Air France on Monday suspended a planned four-day strike starting on June 23 over a continued pay dispute that prompted the resignation of parent company Air France-KLM's AIR.PA chief executive last month.

The unions said in a statement they would wait for the appointment of a new chief to continue negotiations.

The pay dispute has already resulted in 15 days of walkouts this year, costing the group up to 400 million euros ($470.68 million).
