LHR-MAN 6th Dec effected by French disputes?

Just received this from BA for my 1845 LHR-MAN on 6th Dec. I guess this will be related to delays as Iím sure the route to MAN doesnít go over France :0)

Due to planned industrial action by French Air Traffic Control on 6th December, expected to affect flights to and from France as well as those flying in French airspace, your flight tomorrow may be subject to a delay. Our teams will be working hard both overnight tonight and throughout the day tomorrow to minimise any disruption to our services, however we would like to apologise in advance if your journey is affected.

BA1402 is expected to use GEUPG but I don't see where its coming from before it does the LHR-MAN leg. Chances are, it's got a rotation in Europe so will be held up on its journey in to the UK.

EDIT: there's a chance its coming in as BA809 from CPH, scheduled in blocks time of 1740 - not a lot of wiggle room

Iíve got that email too. And Iím on the first MAN flight out of the morning. So I guess someone in BA sent it to anyone who has a booking on the 6th.

Yes, I got the same for my flight to Manchester BA1396 at 15.15 tomorrow (6th). Was quite surprised. I might be booking a backup train as need to be back on time!

Me too... Edinburgh. I am trying to get into the spirit of the situation by practising my Gallic shrug.

Yours looks like it could be coming in on GEUOB from OSL, BA763, scheduled in blocks 1320

The first flight LHR-MAN is the 0710 BA1370 and that looks like it's GEUYA's first rotation of the day, so you "should" be ok. That said, if it's frosty first thing there may be de-icing ops going on so you could have a delay for that if they can't do it early.
