So is it safe to assume that this strike is for the 24 hours of Thursday the 12th? Friday the 13th is flights as normal?

Another selfish view, I could well be spending that weekend in Edinburgh on my own otherwise

Lucky you.
I am supposed to be flying with them to Berlin on the 12th....obviously won't be happening now. I hope I will at least get a refund for the flight

Does anyone know...

I know that when they ballot they have to give 7 days notice minimum to strike
After the first strike action if it goes ahead on the 12th can they strike again then whenever they want? Due to fly 19th. Was so worried this was going to happen.

I'm meant to be flying with Ryanair on the 12th. What are my options now. There's still flights available with Aer Lingus to my destination on that day. Should I go ahead and book Aer Lingus now and claim back with Ryanair later? Any advice would be greatly apprectiated!

In the same situation, although I see that only 100 of their 300 pilots are due to strike.... do they put you on the next available flight???? How does it work???

Thanks.

Yeah but 100 Captains striking is going to ground most flights originating from Ireland.

Operated by Dublin crew so very likely to be affected.

Any idea of impact to DUB-LIS? Given their past debacles, I'm not expecting timely notifications from them.

That almost certainly will be as there are no French bases
