The Azores Airlines strike I didn't know about
Funny thing. I was checking in for my Boston-Lisbon flight on Azores Airlines and available seats were so plentiful it looked like airline options on Christmas day. But this -- in August?
So, I read more carefully and THIS pops up. It's wild - everyone is striking - cabin crew, border control, air traffic controllers (well, OK, that was an earlier strike). Not good, SATA. I'm still not sure if the Passport Control strike has been averted, since we have a layover at the Ponta Delagada, Azores. The US Azores Airlines office only know about the outcome of their strike.
SATA Strike from 23rd to 26th August cancelled
The National Union of Cabin Crew has cancelled their strike. Group SATA informs all passengers who made changes or cancellations in the past days can now change their trip at no extra charge. Please contact your original sales channel.
BUT, is this solved?
Border Control Officials Strike Notice: Due to the notice of strike action by the Border Control Officials at all Portuguese airports, SATA advises its passengers who are taking intercontinental or non-Schengen flights on the 24th and 25th August to arrive at the airport earlier than usual to avoid possible delays in flights.
