No, but today there is a national demonstration.

I just received confirmed information that the two planned air traffic controllers (ATCO's) at Liege Airport LGG refused to start their shift at 8.00 LT this morning, supporting the national demonstration. Traffic at LGG had been disrupted until other ACTO's arrived to replace them.

I checked the departure/arrival information but didn't find any major impact on this action.

Also on a positive note, there is still room to grow at Brussels Airport. The queue for PP control at the B Pier started almost at the opposite end of the Connector but there was still room for another 10 extra meters.
The long waiting times are the result of yet another let's-bully-the-passengers action by two Police trade unions.
