Virgin Strike threat lifted

As someone with  a Virgin flight getting ever closer, it is nice to see that common sense has prevailed and the strike has been resolved.

I always love to think of the pilot sitting up front with no worries or cares troubling him, or her, other than my safe arrival, when in actuality they are probably planning the evening's entertainment on autopilot.

Air traffic controllers though, who love a good strike threat, are probably just on the very edge of sanity, so they should be dealt with as carefully as you might in a hostage situation, which is what Joe public usually is.
