I hope no one is flying to France this week.

Airlines were forced to cancel dozens of flights to and from Paris's main airports and southern France Tuesday as air traffic controllers kicked off a six-day strike to outrage.
The work stoppage comes at the height of the tourist season in a nation that attracts more foreign visitors than any other country, and follows a rail protest that affected services abroad and domestically and is still continuing in some areas.
The country's civil aviation watchdog said about one in five flights going to and from several big cities in southern France, or taking off from Paris to the south, Spain, Portugal, Morocco, Tunisia and Algeria, were cancelled and passengers were experiencing delays on other services.

Passengers are entitled to food, drink and accommodation under EU law. I guess we don't have such law in Australia.
