Antigua air traffic control went on strike without warning yesterday afternoon. VS35/6 LGW-ANU-UVF-ANU-LGW overflew ANU and night-stopped in UVF (St Lucia) so all the pax had to be found hotels before they carried on to Antigua when ATC returned to work today.

Cananews http://www.cananews.com/ has a little snippet confirming Airchabum's statement. The airport seems to be open now as some flights have departed. I wonder how the US airlines reacted to this vis-a-vis passengers. Did they tell them tough luck or actually put them up in hotels. Especially those stuck in SJU, and the Continental EWR-SXM-ANU-EWR flight that skipped ANU... the passengers would have been onboard when they go the info that ANU would be skipped.
