hi tripadvisor. a friend is stuck at this very moment in the gatwick airport. she should be flying to venice but french air traffic controllers are on strike, so they can't fly in french airspace. flights are being cancelled right and left she doesn't have internet access due to having an international phone and the line for the airport computer is apparently a very long wait.
I'm trying to get her on a train from london to venice but i can't seem to do that without a million connections. i can get her on the eurostar to paris but then I'm stuck. I've read the posts on trip advisor, but can't find tickets for today or tomorrow. maybe its just that they are all sold out?
any advice is greatly appreciated. I'm also going to post this on the london forum.
