United States: New York City airports: Allow additional travel time, expect minor flight delays during 22 July strike by airport workers

 Around 1,000 baggage handlers and security workers at John F Kennedy (JFK) and LaGuardia (LGA) airports, which serve New York City (New York state), on 22 July plan to observe a strike in connection with a wage dispute. The action will begin at 22.00 (local time) and participants have threatened to form picket lines outside terminal buildings. However, the authorities believe the walkout will result in only minor delays and disruption. Reconfirm the status of your flight with the relevant airport or carrier.
