When labor strife messes with your plans....

Well, we haven't even left yet, and already I'm stressing. It seems Icelandair is experiencing labor troubles. Specifically, the pilots are planning several short strikes. They've already taken 1 day, and had 70 some odd flights cancelled. And one of the scheduled strikes falls smack on the day that we fly from Keflavik to Zurich.  Ugh!

Well, maybe it won't happen. The Iceland parliament just passed a law banning the pilot strike, making it illegal for them to walk out. In response, the flight attendants union is planning to strike.  Who knows what is going to happen, but here's hoping our flights get off in time.
