IT'S A FUCKING PHONE!! PLEASE STOP TALKING ABOUT STUPID GADGETS!! If innovation was inventing a new stupid gadget to update your facebook and browse porn we might as well nuke everything and let the gasteropods take the earth.
Contact air france and ask for a refund, I know they offered it when the conflict started, see if this can be applied to you. I must tell you their lines will be very busy but you probably already guessed that.
The conflict seems to be moving toward a quick resolution, I would not be surprised if it was settled by friday....
I took a plane the day before the strike started, the airport was a mess and a lot of people ended up staying on the ground. Make sure you confirm your flight is still on or get a refund (they'll provide it) and use another company. AF are trying to fuck their pilots up the ass like they try to fuck everyone else but pilots know they have some leverage, this thing is about to end so you might not even have to change anything.
