Hey everyone, I've noticed quite alot of delays on flights coming from the Canaries tonight. Here at DUB EI have cancelled a flight and FR, OK, BY
all have delays of about 2-3 hours. Anyone have any idea about what's going on? Just to mention the weather looks fine.

Hmm, here at AMS the inbound flights from the Canaries are delayed as well:
HV 0510 Fuerteventura 01:20 Expected 05:20
HV 0108 Las Palmas 01:50 Expected 21:00 (this one has another reason I think, probably a technical fault )
OR 0128 Arrecife via Fuerteventura 02:25 Expected 04:55
'Every year donkeys and mules kill more people than plane crashes'
Quoting Ryanair.com: Due to an unexplained go slow by the Canary Islands Air traffic control, Ryanair flights to and from the Canary Islands have been delayed in some cases by up to 10 hours.
Ryanair is seeking to establish the reason for this unexplained go slow by Air traffic control from AENA, the government agency responsible for the supervision and management of Air traffic control within Spain and the Canary Islands. Once the reason for this go slow is established from AENA, Ryanair will immediately advise our passengers. In the meantime passengers can expect that their flights will be delayed until further notice. Ryanair sincerely apologises for this inconvenience, which is completely outside of our control.

Air traffic controllers are negotiating the labour collective agreement for next year.
Unions, in order to pressure for this agreement, are not covering the unavailable ATC or those not showing up for work and no overtime hours were done. This is the main reason for air traffic restriction and for delays of more than 5 hours in the Canaries.

NCL-TFS-NCL flights have had mega delays of over 10 hours and one flight was even coached from another airport. I thought it had something to do with the weather here but looks like it's the good old ATC who are causing more problems than the snow.
