Strike Hinders Travel in France

You can still find discount airfare to France this summer. Many French trains stood still, schoolchildren played instead of studied and post offices were closed as workers throughout the nation went on strike Thursday in protest of President Nicolas Sarkozy’s plans to raise the retirement age to 62.

Almost 200 marches and protests are planned for several cities over a large reform to the money-losing pension system, this is part of efforts around Europe to cut back on growing public debts.

The French civil aviation authority, DGAC, asked airlines to cancel 15 percent of their flights out of Paris’ Charles de Gaulle and Orly airports because of strikes by air traffic controllers. Air France said all of its long-haul flights would not be affected.
