Les Jeux sont FaitsI now have airline tickets taking me to Charles de Gaulle airport May 29, and a centre court ticket for Roland Garros on May 31. There are a number of risks in this. But I bet it all works out, and France justifies my faith yet again.
My travel agent was honest enough to supply their travel advisory:
TRAVEL ALERTS 5/4 - 5/4 Student protests continue in France. Details 4/4 - 4/4 Nationwide, transportation strikes are occurring in 32 other cities, including Toulouse and Marseille. 4/4 - 4/4 Delays and cancellations to domestic and European flights are occurring due to a strike by air traffic controllers, and Ryanair has canceled all of its flights into and out of the country. 4/4 - 5/4 French air traffic control staff also plan to take industrial action, this will be ongoing until the morning of April 5. Details 4/4 - 4/4 A runway demonstration by protesting French students has prevented a a Jet2.com flight from returning to Britain. Details
Decidedly not comforting!
