Strike update?

We are arriving at KEF this Friday morning, the 25th. Will there be a strike going on at the airport? What do we end to know about this?

According to the union leader, it´s very likely to be on.

But we really do not know until it happens.

Will mean long delay, +5 hours or more.

You should ask the airline.

Icelandair will (most likely) delay the departure from the USA to ensure you land in Keflavik after the strike is over (09:00 AM).

Updates can be found on this site http://www.kefairport.is/English/ but everything indicates the strike will take place.

For better wages, like most who strike.

Slightly concerned about the proposed all out strike on 30th, as I arrive on 28th and leave on 1st May! ( don't mind a reasonable unplanned extension to my trip though).

Is there another strike planned for this month or what ? I fly from SEA on the 16th....arriving at KEF on the 17th.

Will the flights even take off or just get delayed? What happened in the above cases ?

Takk !

Would love to hear some advice on this as well. I just checked Icelandmag and there is one on 23 May, the day I am flying out and I am flying by Icelandair
