It will but never know how bad. Last general strike wasn't that bad.

Funny as I heard the last general strike in September 2010 was bad - budget airlines were affected particularly Ryan Air and EasyJet - I contacted EasyJet about this and they weren't interested as they said they hadn't heard about it! I am not taking any chances and so have paid to come back a day earlier - apparently people were stranded for days and had to pay for their own accommodation - the airlines didn't want to know. I am glad I've got a heads up and can do something about it now.

Friends:

We do not know how the strike on March 29 will affect transportation because there is no news about that yet.

No problems on March 30, unless flying on Iberia, which has a strike on that day.

Benny,

it is worth noting that the Iberia strike has recently been called off:

The Iberia strike was just particular to that airline - this is a general strike - a bit different I think and even if the planes were running which from what I hear is unlikely, the buses and taxis will be off so you wouldn't be able to get to the airport anyway!

Does anyone know what time the strike is due to start ? I am due to catch a flight into Madrid arriving last thing on 28 March, so if the Metro goes down at midnight on the dot, I am going to be in trouble. Does anyone remember what time public transport went down last time (September 2010) ?

My girlfriend is flying out of JFK on an Iberia flight to meet me in Madrid.

Here flight leaves JFK at 11:55pm Spanish time on March 29th and gets into Madrid on March 30 at 7am. The Iberia strike is now off, but will her flight be affected by the general one? Any thoughts on this are greatly appreciated. I haven't seen her in three months and if her flight gets cancelled I'll be devastated.
