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.
Agreed about MXP better than FCO.

Now a few comments:
1. The Malpensa Express to FS (Centrale) is 1 hour and 10 minutes if you do not miss the connection at Cadorna and know where you are going
2. There is fog today and it is July (summer) BTW
3. Nonsense on the "do not plan to travel Monday or Friday"- are you so worried about strikes? Really?
4. If the English language skills are so bad perhaps this is a great opportunity to practice your Italian- or wait- don't you speak fluent Italian? Terrible. Welcome to Boston. Silly comment really.
