General Strike In Argentina On June 25, 2018 (Most If Not All Flights Canceled)

There is general strike in Argentina this Monday on June 25, 2018 that will see air travel coming to a complete halt. Most airlines have already canceled their flights to/from Argentina that are either scheduled to land or take off on that date.

It could be difficult to get around in the country too because public transportation employees are striking as well. Taxi drivers are participating too but I am sure that there are taxis available but might be at a higher cost. Uber is available at least in Buenos Aires.

Iberia Promotion

What made this promotion really weird is that you can make the reservations far out, the bonus Avios will be deposited to your account within 10 days of the purchase and that you can keep them as long as you don’t cancel your flights.

2 Comments

You rarely see IAG, the parent of airlines such as British Airways and Iberia, and Ryanair taking action in tandem but seems that both are fed up with the air traffic control strikes affecting France.

Ryanair

IAG and Ryanair are penning a complaint to the European Commission that these French strikes (254 days between 2004 and 2016) restrict the rights of European citizens to travel and there has to be a balance between those and the employees rights to strike.
