UK Airport Strike?

Tue Nov 12, 2002 7:41 pm


I am off on Friday 15 November to the US via LHR (BA TLV LHR and VS LHR JFK) returning Saturday 23 November.

Will the strike effect my travel in any way? What is going on?

I don't think so, I recall the strikes commencing at the end of the month-around November 29th.
