    I have a flight to CPH connecting in CDG on June 20th. Do I need to be concern about delayed flight? Does the strike ever last longer than advertised?

  2. Delta Points says:

    @sil – you should be fine but keep a close eye!

  3. sil says:

    Thanks. Last May, there was some sort of strike in Vienna and that was where I had to connect. Many flights were cancelled but I lucked out and mine was not. There sure are alot of strikes in Europe.

    Hey Rene,

    I am on the verge of getting Gold Status. First time ever…I would have it but had to fly a couple other airlines due to work schedule and location. Fling the other airlines really made me appreciate our airline. Oh and the looks I got when some people noticed my Delta Points luggage tag on my backpack were priceless. Thanks for the tag….been on my bag for almost a year now!

    @tom – guarantee 4 life let me know if you ever need replacement.

  6. JGfromOC says:

    Oh joy. I’m flying with AZ on June 14 – same day as their FA strike. Wonder how [edit] I am going to be.

  7. Delta Points says:

    @JGfromOC – if landing in France, not good I would say!

  8. JGfromOC says:

    I’ll be going from LAX to FCO, but I hear AZ is going to be having a 24 hour FA strike the same day I am flying, so sounds like I might be in trouble. Interestingly, I am flying on a DL flight number (codeshare with AZ) and DL has not issued any travel advisory. And of course, AZ isn’t saying a thing.

  9. Delta Points says:

    @JGfromOG – send a tweet to @DeltaAssist with links and see about free change. They are just TOPS that way.

  10. JGfromOC says:

    Already did. They aren’t showing any advisory at the moment so nothing they can do. Just going to have to ride this out. I have a separate AZ PNR for inter-Italy travel once I land in FCO as well, so this could get interesting quickly.
