Air Traffic Controllers Strike in France

Finishing its fifth day now, the air traffic controllers strike has held up planes and caused cancellations primarily at Orly rather than Charles de Gaulle airport. As many French families plan to leave this weekend for school winter break vacations, the unions have been moving toward a reprieve, however yesterday, Valentine’s Day still saw delays at Orly.
One of the delayed flights was the historic Paris to Prague flight which supposedly set a first world record for the number of kisses in flight. The 21 couples participated in this historic event were delayed for three hours before take off due to the strike – but their spirits weren’t at all dampened.
Sky Europe sponsored this Kiss-in.
