The Independent’s travel expert is on hand to answer your queries as rail strikes and flight cancellations blight getaway plans
Now is the summer of our discontent – 至少, if you’re trying to get anywhere.
This week brought not only the biggest rail strike seen in decades, with trains across Britain impacted by three 24-hour walkouts, but continuing woes for airlines and airports too.
Heathrow had a baggage handling “meltdown” on Monday, leading to various flight cancellations, while easyJet said it would be cutting its proposed summer schedule by 7 百分, meaning hundreds of services will end up being axed ahead of time.
Across the Pond, a pilot shortage is causing flight cancellations in the US.
