Not a good summer to travel to/through France
As of this writing, for the next three months, there will be rail and air strikes in France . 2/5 days there would be a train strike and on those days SNCF will not sell you ticketss. Air France also has announced additional days of strike
I am arriving on 30/3 at CDG and departing on 4 april. Really incredible inconvenience if you hae to travel to the provinces. To catch my flight to Miami on the 4th april, I have to take a train from Bretagne on the 2nd and stay two nights at CDG!
This information may be of help to people who are planning to visit France this summer
Thanks for passing that along. Hopefully you’ve saved someone some inconvenience.
Thank you again for this info. We are traveling MIA-NTE via CDG. The flight on AF would be May 24th and returning on Sunday May 27th. I saw a LoyaltyLobby.com post that AF will announce the May strikes on April 26. On the link to an AF website, it states that any delay over 5 hours allows a full refund. So, I guess the other option is a car rental for a 4 hour journey to Nantes.
My question is: where did you find that calender of clear days/ strike days? Or, did you create it on your own? Thanks for any links on help on our travel next month.
Greetings from Miami, I will be leaving for Singapore on 24th and certainly not flying AF (used to be Platinum Flying Blue but dont fly them at all, even though I was forced to take a REN-CDG_TLV flight recently which was horrible)
I found the calendar in some newspaper while I was in France, i just copied it out of their website.
the situation with AF is terrible and they are bleeding a lot of money and the French are getting tired of this! that is saying something.
Good Luck. My next trip to France is not until the first week of July (intentionally planned), hope all the strikes are over by then
