    Just received this press release from AF:

    Due to the call for strike action by several pilot unions, from September 15 to 22, we expect important disruptions in our flights schedule as of this Monday, September 15, 2014.

    Please note that Air France flights operated by other airlines, including HOP, KLM and Delta, are maintained.

    The application of the Diard law will allow us to have a more accurate estimation of the number of pilots declaring themselves on strike action 48 hours in advance.

    Our flight schedule will be adapted accordingly and published at latest 24 hours ahead of departure. If you have left us your personal contact, we will be able to advise you by SMS or E mail.

    On September 15th, we expect to operate 40% of our flights. Our programme will be updated between Saturday evening, September 13th and Sunday, September 14th.
    Last minute disturbances are not excluded.

    Our teams are fully mobilized and make their utmost to assist you and minimize the impact of this industrial action on your travel plans.

    If you are travelling on a flight operated by Air France, we propose you to modify your departure to avoid the period from September 15th to 22nd 2014, with the following conditions:

    - You may anticipate your trip before September 15th, 2014 or postpone it between September 23rd and 30th, 2014 included, at no extra cost in the same cabin, on this website, in the "Review / modify your reservations" section, on our mobile sites or from your travel agent.

    - To postpone your trip beyond September 30th, 2014, to change your origin or destination or if you no longer wish to travel, you can benefit of non-refundable voucher valid one year on Air France or KLM. In this case, please contact your usual travel agent.

    - If your flight is cancelled or delayed by more than 5 hours, you can also request the refund of your ticket. For this option, we invite you to visit our "Practical information" page below, or contact your usual travel agency.

    Practical information:
    To allow us to inform you personally in real time of any changes on your flight, please check that you have updated your personal contact details (mobile telephone and/or email address) in your reservation file or your Flying Blue profile.
    You can consult and update this information at any time on this website in the "Consult/modify my bookings" section and on our mobile sites.

    Before go you to the airport, it is recommended to verify the informations on flights operated, available in real time on this site, it the "Flight schedules" and on our mobile sites.

    Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this strike action may cause you.

    Seems like neither side is giving way. It will be a tough week.
