Lanzarote ACE Baggage Troubles?

Wed Aug 24, 2005 2:44 am

I heard there were some strikes and severe baggage delays last week at ACE/Lanzarote. As I am flying there tomorrow...I wonder if I should severely stuff my hand-luggage?
Thanks in advance for any current info!

El personal de handling de Iberia en Lanzarote reanudará la huelga ante la falta de acuerdo

meaning Iberia Handling staff will strike back due to lack of agreement...

No more news from that day.
Tip: It's summer... pack in a back-pack and take it as carry-on luggage... you may check-in luggage but be aware you may not collect your luggage in ACE and it'll get back to your point of origin in the same aircraft

Apparently luggage was taking three days to arrive to their owners, so be warned. Thomson Holidays sent out staff to help with loading/unloading aircraft. I don't know if the stike is going ahead tomorrow or not. I can only confirm UK companies that are affected. The strike is not affecting Thomas Cook, First Choice or Monarch. The main companies that are being affected are British Airways and MyTravel. Iberia handling are the company who are striking at the moment. Enjoy your trip.

Just been reading on a Lanzarote website that the strike has been called off for this week, only ATC will delay flights now.
