A bit more exotic but not less unpleasant :
Strike at NBO, leading to numerous cancellations and huge delays.

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-47467271

I'm attending the African Airports Congress in Luxor and yesterday evening Jonny Andersen, the CEO of Kenya Airports Authority, dropped everything and returned to NBO in order to handle the crisis.

One of the reasons for the strike is the plan, made public by QA a few weeks ago, to create a single entity covering airline and airports in a similar fashion as Ethiopian operates now.

I pity those who planned a safari in Kenya.

They are back in business:

...By the end of the day, however, most scheduled arrivals had been processed while the departures backlog was being cleared, state-run airports operator KAA said. The strike was sparked by a plan to hand over management of the profitable airport, the largest in the country, to the loss-making national carrier..."

HungaroControl confirmed that there will be a 2 hours so called “warning strike” on April 17th between 09:00-11:00 UTC.

Depending on the outcome of negotiations, ATCOs could decide to go on strike for unlimited time starting on April 23rd daily between 08:00-13:00 UTC .
NMOC is looking at possible Network impact and will organize a conference call beginning of next week.

That's just the opposite of a previous situation, when all the Brussels Airlines pilots were on strike and only the flights operated by CityJet and bmi were in the air.

Due to industrial action, JET A1 FUEL is not available at LPPT airport (Lisbon) after 1100 UTC.

Aircraft shall land with enough fuel to depart to the next stop. See NOTAM reference A1413/19.
