I wouldn't change my travel plans out of fear for a strike. Just buy travel insurance. And there is no fog in the summer BTW.

In any case, the rule for Italy (ALL of Italy) is not to plan travel on Mondays or Fridays. That's for everything- planes and trains. As for Malpensa being the worst airport in Europe have you been to CDG lately? Or FRA? Or TXL? Far from the worst--good food and shopping although lounges stink. And yes, English-language skills are terrible but welcome to Italy. That's everywhere.
