I had a flight to Lyon cancelled and the airline refused compensation because the reason for the cancellation would be a strike at a handling company Aviapartner at Lyon airport.
Now I do find other airlines cancelling flights on July 16, but I do not find any information from trade unions, local newspapers or the airport itself mentioning the strike. Whereas I do easily find information about earlier strikes of the company.
The cancellation took place during a very messy summer with lack of staff across airlines with many flights cancelled for operational reasons. Also, many other flights with the same handling agent could take place as scheduled on July 16.
Can anyone provide me with some more information about a potential strike of Aviapartner LYS ? Are there any other ways to check this information other than file a lawsuit against the airline and force them to come with proof?
