European ATC Strike, Thursday 10th October

Anyone know if this strike is happening as unable to find any information about it and have only seen it mentioned on a travel forum.

Many Thanks as I am due to fly back to the UK that day!

If, and it is a BIG if then the UK is not involved but will be affected by delays from Europe but not from the West.

Any updates on this would be appreciated, I have a flight from Spain to UK booked on the 10th which is my preferred date, but I have also as backup booked a Ryanair flight on the 9th (only €17 to lose) which I don't really want to take.

Hi

This is not good, it might affect me. I'm flying back from Prague on the 10th.

These things are terribly hard to judge, as a call to strike is not always fully supported and the impact can be from minimal to max disruption. Not so helpful I know, but worse case,,,an extra night in Prague:-))

Hi

Actually it would be no problem whatsoever for me, I have family over there so not even a hotel bill. But even so my job on here is to tell everyone else not to make a fuss, it might be a bit different if I was the one left stranded.

MSP->AMS->BCN leaving MSP on Oct 10 for a cruise that leaves BCN on the 12th. Any reason to be concerned that we won't reach BCN on Oct 11 on schedule? Think I should call Delta to see what they have to say about it?

Articles saying strike on in todays Telegraph! Does anyone know if Ryanair sends you a text message if they cancel your flight?

Just heard on the news that an agreement may be reached and there is a good chance the strike will not happen.

Hi

I've just arranged for my cat to be fed for an extra day. Do ATC's have no consideration.
