Yesterday (Thursday 15 September 16) the French air traffic controllers went on strike for the FOURTEENTH time this year! Cabin crews I have spoken to are sick and tired of their recurring strikes. Ryanair cancelled 100 flights today.
The delayed passengers are reaching their wits end with these consistent disruptions to their travels. I once spent twelve hours in the old Palma Airport terminal, because the French ATC strike grounded the whole of Europe.
I did wonder if there were alternative corridor routes which are not controlled by the French. Perhaps there would be a price surcharge to cover any increase in fuel costs. That could be born by those travelling passengers, affected by another lightning strike. That way flights would be slightly delayed, but passengers would fly on that day.
Finally, what is the problem with the French ATC?
