The problem is not only just the strikes on the proposed days, its the knock on effect, planes/crew not in position after and before the strikes etc. I did read that the airlines were making plans ahead . ...well they are getting plenty of notice!!!

Looks like we miss it by one day. Thank god. Got stuck last year with the ash crisis and was given a return flight date almost 3 weeks later. Oh yeah and try to claim anything on your insurance and they don't want to know.

OK we sort of near missed it but, I'm still worried as our travel dates are 22/04 at 6:45 and back on 29/04 at 21:45...

Does anyone know how that work out with airlines as it is just 6 hours after the strike and 3 hours before???

Also how that will work with insurance bought after the strike dates announcement, the travel dates are differ from the strike dates so can I claim anything in case if the flights are delayed or cancelled???

Thanks

If you bought insurance after the strike was announced you will not be covered. However from what I understand if your flight is cancelled you will be entitled to a refund or will be able to move the flight to another day.

I was due to go on 2 May but I've moved my accommodation to next week and bought another flight as I was not on a package deal and did not want to risk losing my accommodation money. I've still got the May flight booked but i'll deal with that when I know what's happening.
