It's too soon for definite confirmation, 24-48 hrs before is the usual timeframe for them to announce whether the strike will be for 4hrs, 24hrs etc. In the meantime it may even be deemed illegal.

Watch on here for accurate & regular updates,

Do not waste your time or money pestering your holiday company until an ATC strike (& it's duration) is confirmed, they won't confirm any change in flight arrangements until then.

I had no intention of contacting my airline and I know that it can be called off,I only wanted people to be aware it is a possibility as they to could be travelling on the 15th thought that the forum was to keep people informed of what could be a potentially a possibility.

charzip - you ended your post <<<updates anyone?>>> to which yiassas gave an informative reply that will allow anyone potentially affected or even remotely interested to get the best possible information without speculation, guesswork, rumour etc etc. No need to be ungrateful!

Fingers crossed for everyone affected that the strike is indeed called off.

Hey Em

It seems u have taken offence to our Greek friends post, why?

The poster, who clearly is informed on these matters, was attempting to help you. How does he know what u do or do not know. Some useful information provided and a useful link designed to help you.

Don't know why he bothered.

I offered info on how to monitor updates without speculating on what might or might not happen, also some general advice as these threads usually get many replies along the lines of "I've been trying to get updates from Easyjet, TC or whoever & they say they don't know of any strike". Just pointing out for everyone else's benefit that this is the case until there are CONFIRMED strike dates & durations involving the ATC.

You asked for updates, I gave them, not sure why I bother to try & be helpful sometimes.

No need to contact any airline. The day before any strike they will post travel information on their web sites.
