Amy Farley from Travel and Leisure for giving us a shout out.
JohnnyJet is a very well respected site and we are thankful they gave us "Website of the WEEK" Yes, us, they've even given us a compliment.
We can't answer this one "Have kids ever gone on strike?"
How to reassure a passenger if the fuel runs out?
We don't know "Where to buy Lucky Strikes in Tunisia?"

Came across this website this week.
Perfect match for viewers of Easy Travel Report
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".
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?
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?

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.

Thanks for all your encouragement. Got something to say? Send us your tips, gripes. We don't have eyes in the back of our head. Awkward.
