All the Air France strike news has rekindled my interest in flying to Europe. Seriously. Lufthansa has strikes about 1/3 of the time I have a reservation with them. Memories. Last time I got to fly British Airways and Air France. The time before got me my first ride on a 747-8. All those trips were bought with miles, but Lufthansa paid cash to rebook me, so I earned miles. Strikes can be fun.
