So Gatwick was closed for two days and thus my Wednesday flight turned out to be a Friday afternoon one.
And we were on the plane, all buckled in and ready to roll when…..the Spanish air traffic controllers went on strike.
So I\’m now about to potter off to Luton to see whether the 3 ish flight this afternoon is going to take off.
We can see that some flights are getting into Portugal (the Spanish have essentially threatened to shoot the air traffic controllers by declaring something akin to an state of emergency and putting them under military discipline) and maybe this one will.
Not long now and the delay in getting home will be greater than the trip itself was supposed to be.
