Default Threats of possible strikes.

Don't know if this has been mentioned elsewhere, but according to the MDB there is a possibility of strikes at Palma airport on specific days during September, October, November and December

Yes saw this, starting the 15th I believe up to the 22nd, then from the 24th again, it's just one thing after another isn't it!

It really won't take much more for tourists to go elsewhere and I'm saying this as a visitor of more than 20 odd years

thanks Sparky...reluctant to book flights for this month as both proposed travel dates were on the original list.....I know that Spanish strike threats often fizzle out, but equally have been caught out with cancellations in the last few years which have cost us money, time & grief....getting too old for that now....Greece / Cyprus beckon.....
