Air and Rail Strikes Disrupt Travel Around France

  Air and Rail Strikes Disrupt Travel Around France If you're traveling in France this week—or this spring—you might want to take a deep breath.Ah, spring: Time to clean out that closet, take that New Year's resolution trip, and, if you're a French transportation worker, go on strike in the face of new labor laws that could curtail the right to freely take industrial action at all. A series of strikes in France, affecting both train and air travel, is set to lead to a whole lot of frustration for travelers looking to fly in Europe or city-hop on France's high-speed trains. Unions representing French air traffic controllers announced a national call for a strike to last from 7 p.m.

Plane© Provided by Hearst Television, Inc. Plane The calls to change flight patterns near Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport are getting louder. Technology introduced by the Federal Aviation Association in 2015 made things a bit noisier for those who live by the airport.

A roundtable talk was held by more than 100 residents and FAA officials Tuesday night at Lindale Middle School in Anne Arundel County to evaluate air traffic procedures for the airport and find possible alternatives.

Residents said for the last four years, aircrafts departing and arriving have disrupted their lives with a lot of added noise.

"The single-lane air traffic has diminished my peace of owning a rural property," said resident Anne Cowles.

Cowles moved to her farmland home in 1972 and said back then, air traffic was occasional, but now, it disrupts her sleep.

"I get awoken at 6 a.m. or earlier. There's continual noise from above that I find it's just impossible to get back to sleep," Cowles said.

The FAA presented proposals for changes or conceptual options. One proposal involves the addition of one nautical mile on Runway #10, which would allow aircraft to get higher quicker.

Another concern was aircraft arrivals. For example, Runway No. 28 uses 63 percent of flights per year. But an FAA representative said, after reviewing that runway, there was nothing that could be done in terms of making changes. Each aircraft has a standard rate of climb depending on weight of the aircraft, balance and weather conditions.

"The actual procedure that we could develop, we did not develop a procedure that would have benefited that," an FAA representative said.

It's something in which neighbors disagreed.

"Every aircraft flies in the Super Highway, so if you're under the Super Highway, you're getting a beating. You're getting noise from every airplane taking off and every airplane landing," said Chris Yates, vice chair of the roundtable.

FAA representatives said any changes must undergo a safety risk analysis and an environmental review. They said the earliest possible implementation for any changes would be late 2019, early 2020.
