I don't think this affects Thomas Cook, Thomson and Ryanair flights as it is Swissport that are going on strike apparently.

previous poster is incorrect...as of 16th October both Thomson.Thomas Cook ( and Monarch) have switched to Swissport handling from their current providers.( its one of the main reasons for the strike...extra work but no extra staff !).....Ryanair is not affected as they use their own staff for baggage handling
