Heathrow Airport has said 39 flights - nearly all involving Spain or Portugal - had been cancelled today at the west London airport, as a result of strike action across Europe.
Most people seem to have got the message that some flights were going to be axed and the terminals are operating smoothly.
Flight cancellations are never good news, but we do operate around 1,300 flights a day so the figure of 39 is a comparatively small one.
Police and protesters clashed in Spain, Italy and Portugal as millions of workers went on strike to challenge to austerity policies.
As well as strikes across Europe, today has also produced figures that may convince people at the top that austerity is self-defeating.
