Possible Air France strike from 15th to 22nd of September

The recent rumors about a strike at Air France have been somehow confirmed: the main pilots union is apparently about to announce a call for strike, from Monday 15th to Monday 22nd of September, from 05.00 to 23.00 (lemonde.fr/economie/article/2014/08/28/preav…)

Confirmation and details should follow on http://www.snpl.com/

I depart on September 28 SFO-CDG....so I'm keeping an eye on this. Are the transatlantic flight typically affected by these strikes? If memeory serves I seem to remember intercontinental flight being affected more. Between this and the volcano in Iceland I'm really hoping things go smoothly!

Would the strike affect management of flights on other airlines that are arriving during this period? (USAirways, arr Sept 16).

The call for strike was made by a pilot union only up to now (but by far the main one), so there is no reason that ground services should be affected in any way, at least as long as no ground staff union joins the movement.

Aloha from Kaua'i!

Well color me relieved!

I leave from LAX to CDG on the A380 on Sept 7th so I was sweating before hearing the dates.

Of course our return trip (we are there two weeks) could be affected if long haul international flights are impacted - but at least I will BE in Paris!

A couple more days in Paris don't sound bad - of course my husband disagrees with me! LOL

Malama Pono (take care)

Glad you dodged that bullet, Janet. Now you and your husband can have that dream holiday. I agree that being stranded in Paris won't be a bad thing at all.

Janet,

I was thinking about your trip, when I saw the date - the 28th, and then the projected/threatened dates for the strike.

Travel safely,

Hunt
