Air Strike

Those bloody french ATC-ers. You may have seen my ranting tweets yesterday. I was pretty pissed off because my younger daughter and her friend were stuck at Barcelona airport because of the French ATC strike.

To add insult to injury the a/c they were moved to (in order to secure their escape) experienced engine trouble. So, instead of arriving at LHR around 17.30 Tuesday, they finally landed this morning at 01.50.

I think it’s time that Europe’s air traffic controllers had their JDs changed to make strike action illegal, as is the case in the USA.

Rant over. For now.
