You haven't said where you are going or where you are from so mo one can really help you!

If its the Glasgow gig and you are in the UK then look at train options.

That's a bugger. I was worried that I'd have similar issues with BA but I think they've left it too late to announce dates which would coincide. Fingers crossed.... I guess at least aer lingus haven't hiked the prices up (yet).

I booked Ryanair flights to and from Dublin. Fingers crossed they will cancel strikes but if not, I have got a plan B thanks to these two lovely gentlemen.

Good to have options! I'd have been stuck if there was as much as BA strike!

Even if they announced it today it will be fine, as it doesn't affect the City Airport flights.

Sucks for those who have ryanair flights, Riina you got those options discussed yesterday

Aer Lingus appeared to have plenty of space for the flight we booked onto, but we were on it early this morning

£60 each for us. Not great but could have been a lot worse and we’ve still ‘only’ spent about 90 on flights each.

I am hoping that my travel insurance or Ryanair or someone will pay compensation if I need to find an alternative way to get home Thursday.
