Easy Travel Report 
Industrial Action Strike Guide for 2017


Dear Fellow Travelers, 
Give us suggestions. Are we on the right track? What would you like to see? Keep it clean! We hope you've found this information useful. Help us get the word out.

Do send us any industrial action that your participating in either intentional or accidental! Your feed back is vital to us. Particularly what we've missed! We love a good correction. Keep sending your articles in.

To our critics, our readers just want to know what to expect, no more, no less. When holidaymaker's go on vacation they have little tolerance for hanging out in ports, airports, train stations and incurring extra costs with hotels and alternative transportation. They just want to sit on the beach with the kids and support your economy. No vendetta here. 

Viewer called us the drudge of travel, very witty... We wish.
Another viewer "not exactly drop dead gorgeous, but gets the point across" and another "A really useful site (though guaranteed to give you a few sleepless nights!!!). Will definitely check regularly on this one".

Jeez, thanks..

Another viewer
I appreciate what you are doing and I agree totally with your sentiment.
I am an international traveler for business on average one international trip a week, all year long.(maybe more lately).

I have been extremely inconvenienced like yourselves. I have slept on the floor in Narita airport, I have been treated as an animal in a mob of passengers at Milan Malpensa, and scrambled for an emergency place to
stay near JFK, etc, etc.

Can't you just feel this passengers pain.

From Karen:-I just want to thank you for the warning...unfortunately, I did not heed it, and my husband and I, traveling from Nice to Savona, Italy, were kicked off the train at the last stop in France, Menton, along with 3 others, with no prior warning of any troubles ahead. There WAS a strike in Italy, and we had to catch a cruise that evening, so ended up splurging on a taxi to Savona. But this is a great website...keep up the good work!! We went to the Nice train station to buy tickets a couple of days before we planned to travel to Savona, and I even asked at that time if there was any word of a strike in Italy.  The man looked at me and said in a very disinterested manner, "We do not know about Italy.  We sell French tickets.".   Well, OK then!!  
Our table mates on the ship had a flight cancellation on Iberia for their return, which was to be on Easter Sunday.  They ended up leaving the ship early, in Marseille, in order to get home.  Too bad....
​---
Do you have a particular app that you can't live without?
​---
Lastly
​Why do we leave information up you ask? Because travel agents, insurance companies and passengers refer to it. 

We get emails on a regular basis asking did this strike really happen or I need proof it happened?

Cruise Critic Forum
I just came across this site - http://www.easytravelreport.com/index.html - looks to be helpful if you want to have a backup plan.
Thanks for the info. Plan to save the site and check it from time to time. Every travel agent in this world should use it also.

May 2015 New review nice http://www.telegraaf.nl

So Avoid all your strikes during holidays
All papers regularly, suitcases packed and the house is on side. You're ready for your vacation and head towards the airport. Where you really do not fancy, is an unexpected strike at the airport. Fortunately, you can at home enough to figure out through a convenient web site, so you will not be confronted with unpleasant surprises.
With the holiday season approaching, the chance of latency. But it gets worse if your flight is canceled completely, for example by a strike. That happened to a lot of travelers in 2014, with strikes at Lufthansa and KLM partner Air France. In 2015, the chances of flights canceled suddenly also provided.
Just before the website is easytravelreport.com created. The page displays a country where at the moment strikes, but also countries which are risky in that area. Not only airlines but also by other carriers. The site warns especially for France. French air traffic controllers union is vehemently against the retrenchment of employment - a plan of the government. The eyes are focused on the Italian air traffic controllers, who have threatened to strike.

From Dee
We found your fantastic site two weeks after leaving our luggage at Brussels airport due to the May, 2013 'industrial action'. Along with 78,000 other pieces of luggage, our 2 were eventually returned, once we were home, four weeks later. We were not informed of the 'industrial action' when we checked in in Rome, thank you Brussels Airlines. So we, experienced travellers of 30+ years, learned the hard way that we have to inform ourselves. And your site is excellent. We have sent it to many, many people. Keep up the fantastic work! - Sincerely, thankful Canadians

---
May I just say how wonderful your website is and how it has helped me this year. I travel to Europe quite frequently and with all the strikes in France and Italy particularly, it has been an incredible help and always so topical - much more so in fact than the individual airlines webpages.

I have recommended it to several of my friends. Thank you so much for making life that much easier!

Very best wishes

Transportation strikes for 2015. We just want to give you the "Heads Up" of a potential travel disruption, disaster! Find out whose ripe for industrial action. Check here first, even before you've bought your airline ticket. Be prepared for next trip. 2016 shaping up to be contentious between shareholders, unions and employees.

We are always looking for guest bloggers ie:- Tell us your travel experiences good and bad.
Italian strikes
www.easytravelreport.com
Over the years we've learned:-
Take a picture of the departure board, with time and date of cancellations. Document everything.

Save all receipts, you never know.

Put airline phone number in your phone as sometimes it's easier to call them when you have 30 people in front of you at the check out desk.

Before you leave/book. Know which other airlines are going your way.

Wear as many clothes as possible and pack just hand luggage.
(If an airport security strike is going on, less stuff you have in hand luggage the better. You want to get through security as fast as possible. You will be stressed by the queue and it's possible your flight will leave without you)

Make sure you have room on your credit card to put the expense of another flight on it and it probably won't be a low cost flight! Expect more costs for your luggage.

Competing airlines love it when your airline strikes. It's not unusual for them to up the price fares at this time and add extra flights or planes with larger passenger capacity.

When Spanish air traffic control went on strike a few years ago. Only hotels available were the really, really expensive high end or hotel's you wouldn't put your enemy in.

When German Lufthansa Airline strike, rental cars across Germany get yet more expensive and scarce.
