Thai Airways Striking on 11 February 2014

For anyone flying Thai Airways on Monday the 11th February 2014 take note that, as of today, the airway's union will go on total strike on that day.

Here's the Thai PBS piece on it: http://englishnews.thaipbs.or.th/tha...tdown-airline/

Says "Monday". Is there an update?

Now the newly appointed president of the airline is countering the shutdown call, or strike, from the union with a denial.

Looks like conflicting articles. Will have to wait and see, if and when.

Unfortunately, seems like "Shutdown" might become latest craze!

Although it probably won't affect many here, for what it's worth, the "acting" president of TG does say no strike.

On the other hand, my neighbor, a card carrying TG Union member, says that at 10:00, Monday, they are striking.
