French air strike 09/06/18

I have just received a text message from EasyJet to say flights maybe delayed or cancelled tomorrow due to French air traffic control strike. I have tried to find the flight path from Gatwick to Marrakech to see if it uses this air space but not found any info. Does anyone know the route please? Thank you.

It won't be an issue for a flight from Scotland to Morocco. Worst case scenario is they fly around France and onto Spain.

I misread. I thought she said Glasgow not Gatwick. My bad.

The last strike did cause many flights to be delayed, and extra full as airlines rush to re connect their passengers who were going through France.

I flew a flight on Ryan air from Marakech to Europe and my flight was on time and left as normal.

So just keep checking with Ryan air.

I also got that message. We fly Liverpool to Alicante and I already fear the worst.

What is really annoying is the very short notice

From the title I wondered who the French were going to attack.
