Now is the summer of our discontent – at least, if you’re trying to get anywhere.

This week not only brings the biggest rail strike seen in decades, with trains across the UK affected by three hikes in 24 hours, it also continues to spell disaster for carriers. airline and airport.

Heathrow had a baggage handling “crisis” on Monday, leading to numerous flight cancellations, while easyJet said it would cut its proposed summer schedule by 7%, meaning hundreds of flights. The service will end before the deadline.

Across Pond, pilot shortages are causing flights to be canceled in the US.
