No problems for me flying out of Schiphol on Tuesday.
Everything was fine!
Ugh...just when I was thinking of flying to Liverpool cuz they get Echo and the Bunnymen (likely the only opener I'll like this run)...
A warning about Paris, on Saturday the RERs were on strike the day of the football league final expressly to create chaos; it's very possible they may go on strike the day the Stones play Paris Hippodrome Longchamp making it hell to get to the show from the airport and from the suburbs!
The RER were on strike the day of the 14OF show at the Stade de France. So everyone squashed onto the Metro instead, which luckily weren't on strike.
That happened at the Champions League final this year as well. The union called the strike a succsess because of the chaos it contributed to. This is a quote from a tweet from journalist Miguel Delaney on Twitter a few weeks ago:
"From AFP: Paris transport unions called Tuesday for a new strike to coincide with a French international football match, hailing the "success" of their action at the weekend that contributed to the chaos that marred the Champions League final between Liverpool and Real Madrid."
I won't be surprised if they try to target the Longchamp show with 100,000 people attending. And if RER is on strike, that normally affects Charle de Gaulle airport as well. Just be prepared.
I also flew out of Schipol the morning after what should have been the show. I arrived at Amsterdam Centraal at midday, got the metro to the airport, arrived at the airport and had cleared security by 1pm. The problems occur if you have luggage to check in. I had a rucksack only and had no issues.
Airport chaos is in the UK is also never as bad as what the media makes it out to be.
Easy Jet announces today it will cancel dozens of flights to and from Gatwick.
Hope this won't affect anyone going to Hyde Park.
Good luck Topi. All this nonsense makes me want to drive but I am going with the flow. Arrival to London wasn't too bad.
