Hi, I was hoping to get some imformation on the upcoming strike threatened on the 28th april, i am due to fly out of Biarritz thursday, but can't seem to be able to find on any imfo on it ...I have rang Biarritz airport and they could give absolutely no imformation, can't contact my airline, what are we supposed to do ?!! anyone have imformation ?
Hope this helps lil
thanks for the link michael, but i can't see if this means all flights are off or some ?
Oh typical the day I am flying back to montpellier with 3 children...joy! There's nothing on easyJet website yet. I will keep looking.
The only info I could find on French news was a rough guess of 20% of orly flights would be cancelled. No other announcements yet but it is declared n the union websites so I guess we just wait and see.
so maybe there is a chance ...i believe the last time ryanair cancelled across the board....as where planes were going to be stranded ..hard to believe noone has imfo on it !
Fingers crossed for you.
I am due to come over by ferry on 28th - so far our crossing is as scheduled ? Will find out tomorrow for sure.
I hope this will help, taken from the Air France website within the last 5 minutes,

Ryanair has announced cancellations for tomorrow (as above) you can rebook or request refund https://www.ryanair.com/gb/en/useful-info/help-centre/travel-updates/air-traffic-control-strike1
Easyjet have announced delays but ask people to turn up on time for their flights though note there WILL most likely be delays. That's me with 3 kids in Gatwick on a strike day...again! I swear they always look at my travel days and blacklist them!
Just found out my flight tomorrow from Orly to Rome is cancelled. Not one word from Easyjet to let us know. It was just by reading here that I thought I had better check! I am hopping mad. Have managed to get on an earlier flight but train tickets to Paris are now no use and have had to buy two more 108 euros! Also had to change the time of the car meeting us in Rome and, worse of all for me, have to leave home before 6.00 am tomorrow - is it worth it I wonder...............
Most airlines will only announce cancellations the afternoon before the strike following advice from the French authorities. I have just flown from LHR to CDG and from an original hour and 20 minutes slot delay we actually left on time and arrived early. Orly seems to be the worst affected.
I'm at Gatwick now. This morning at 6am we were showing an hour delay but now there seems to be no delay and all is calm and on time at Gatwick. Due to fly at 11.40. Keeping fingers crossed will be in Montpellier on time!
So I arrived in Montpellier on time to the news that my husband's Toulouse flight has been cancelled. All Easyjet flights to Toulouse and Montpellier are full until Monday. Ryanair to Beziers - sold out. BA sold out until Saturday.
I've managed to get him on BA Heathrow - Toulouse on Saturday morning. At least he gets to come back for the weekend even if it is 2 days shorter break than planned.
He;s not a happy chappy this evening!
Well, we got to Rome but the new flight was two hours late! The poor driver of the car that was meeting us had been at the airport for more than three hours and, what with our late cancellations and rebookings, I don't think he actually expected to see us at all
