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 this 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?
Penny Ciocchi @ Easy Travel Report
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.

Lufthansa Germanwings Pilot Strike
Friday, 28 March, 2014 German airline pilots announce strike dates. Strikes Start midnight Wednesday April 2nd and will end Friday, midnight the 4th of April. Local time.
Update:-21 March 2014 As expected Lufthansa pilots vote for strike action after two years of negotiations. Lufthansa pilots promise to give 48 hours notice of strike action. Shocking yes, but they don't have to. Make sure you have a plan B. In the past it's been hard to find a hotel room or car rental and not just in Germany. Make sure you have a German visa so you can leave international arrivals for a hotel, rather than sleep on a cot in arrivals. Perhaps book a hotel at both ends of your trip and cancel on the day. We will be updating as the news comes.
Expect Ryanair, AF, EasyJet and BA to put on extra planes to catch windfall of new passengers. German railway's Deutsche Bahn will also put on extra rail cars if given enough warning.

Where each city chooses when they will strike, no more in unisom. Can be as far out as a week from original date. We will conquer this.)
