We made reservations a year ago to be in Spain starting 14 Sept flying home 29 Sept, with flights in and out of Madrid. Our plans include going from Barcelona to Madrid by train on 28 Sept. We just learned of the general strike planned for 29 Sept and we are concerned with transportation on both the 28th and 29th. Before we change our cancel our plans can anyone answer the following questions:
1. I have seen comments that taxis and buses will not run, however have not seen a comment on the metro will they also be shut down.
2. Will there be any means of getting to the airport, such as private shuttles.
3. Will the airport also be shut down and will air controllers join the strike.
4. Is there a chance that the strike could be canceled or extended.
