Ok at the moment, just flying around French airspace but if as anticipated other European air traffic controllers join in tomorrow or Wednesday it could be a lot more difficult to fly anywhere through Europe.

The Italians and Spanish are thought to be preparing to join and if they do others may follow.

you can look at the airport arrival in antalya on this website

www.aytport.com/user/flight.asp?FLIGHT_TYPE=1

looks like many flights have been arrving later than planned ( time now 23;30 11.9.2013 ) but not all..and some are even earlier..so I guess there is no affect for antalya airport

Yesterdays Bristol flight took off on time but landed 35 minutes later, I assume because of the strike. Hope it's over by Tuesday!

Hi Angela,

You would not mind it to much if it was coming home and you were delayed at the resort but no fun being stranded at the Airport !

Hope your holiday gets off to a good start and have a great time !

Yes not the best holiday we have had but I know that the Maxx Royal will deliver and we had better make the most of it because maybe our one and only visits there as prices have rocketed !

Trying to get a week in before then but my husband is not quite so sure and all my suggestions are falling on deaf ears !! lol He says he would go back to the Barut Lara though!! I think he is scared to risk another disappointment.

Will you be online during your stay?

Regards Ann
