I have an upcoming flight from FLL on Air Canada. I am curious if the check in agent strike extends to the US as well? I doubt i can get on this flight by mere online check in hence the questions. By looking around,it appears that the strike is only in Canada (the Air Canada website refers to 9 Canadian airports being affected) but I am just trying to make sure there are no spill over effects on travel on the US side too. I would appreciate if someone can share their travel experience since the strike began.

The strike appears to be in full swing in Canada according to the news reports.

Only at a few Canadian airports. YYT, YHZ, YUL, YOW, YYZ, YWG, YYC, YEG and YVR I believe.

It only applies to AC customer service agent employees who are in the CAW. I don't think we have our own employees in FLL, so it would not really affect your flight all that much. There may be a minor delay on the inbound flight if anything.
The CDN govt said it will be legislating AC strikers back to work on Thursday if there has'nt been a deal reached.

Just print your boarding card prior to arrival at the airport and take carry on to minimize delays. Management is maning the ticket/checkin/baggage-check counters. If you need those services it will just take longer. In all cases just allow extra time.

Check your flight for delays before arriving at the airport. A colleague of mine was to fly to PEK day before yesterday and arrived at YYZ 3 hours before to give himself time. Flight was delayed by 3 hours. He was at the airport for 6 hours.


Chuck Norris can stall an Airbus in normal law because laws don't apply to Chuck Noris.
