When labor strife messes with your plans

Jump to last reply

So I'm due to fly to Iceland middle of next week, and then on to Zurich on Saturday. My plans are perfect, and we were pretty excited about flying Icelandair, and adding a couple days in Reykjavik to our Swiss trip.

Only now I find out that the Icelandair pilots have already had a 1 day strike, and they are threatening more. Including a 3 day strike which will cover the day I'm supposed to fly to Switzerland. Icelandair promises to try and get everyone on flights, but there just aren't that many flights that are not operated by Icelandair.

I've done a little research about what flights are available, so I'll try to be prepared for whatever happens.

The bummer is my first hotel, in Luczern, is the one I pre-paid because the non-refundable rate was so much better. If I end up stuck in iceland, I will lose the money there. And that was, I think, the ONLY hotel I booked non-refundable. Oh well, I suppose those are the risks you take,

I don't know if I'm asking a question here. Mostly just venting...Maybe nothing will come of this, but I hate when things like this mess with carefully laid plans. Anybody else have a story where labor strife messed with your holiday? What did you do?
