Iberia airline potential strikes

Travelling to Spain from USA. Need to get from from Madrid to Malaga June 1st. Is there any definitive info regarding potential strikes at Iberia Airlines? Is Helitt a safer bet?

Cagey:

The strikes are every week on Mondays and Fridays. If you travel on another day you will have no problem on Iberia.

Thanks, Benny. Unfortunately, I'm travelling on Friday. Do you have any experience with Helitt?

You could always take the train from Madrid to Malaga.

If you have to travel that date, there are high speed trains (AVEs) from Madrid to Málaga that take 2 hr 30 min. That is city centre to city centre.

Booked on Helitt once. They're a fraud. Supposedly, they cancelled my flight 2 months in advance and months later, we're still waiting for a refund of the tickets.

I'm not saying that they do not exist, but I'm spanish and I've never heard of them!

a good option for Madrid to Malaga is the AVE train taking 2h30m

otherwise Iberia will do

I live in Spain and have never heard of Helitt until now. I guess they offered the cheapest price. Now we know why.
