Air France Pilots' Strike Sept. 15-22
Though not 100% confirmed yet i was allowed at no fee to change my flight to the 14th to avoid a possible cancellation. Phone lines are getting busy so plan accordingly. They will not know til 24-48 hrs in advance if your flight is cancelled or not but you may be able to change it NOW.

Terrific - time to add Air France to my list of airlines "not to book because they can't seem to manage labour relations with the flight crew."

Air France, meet Lufthansa.

If this extends to KLM, I'm gonna cry. I love that airline - their flight attendants actually seem to love their jobs.

Oh great. We are supposed to be flying them on the 20th, cannot go earlier, and are meeting others for a tour in Croatia on the 24th. Not sure where to go with this right now.

I called and several people assured me it seems unlikely this will involve international flights but there is no guarantee. I am also trying to figure out what to do.

it is affecting international flights as well.. believe me . rebook now to save headaches later. very difficult to find seats o other flights on other airlines as it is. it will take probably 2 hours on phone to rebook. be prepared and take what you can get. Some poeple at CDG were stranded for three days.
