I try to avoid travelling by train or flying during December. Every year there seems to problems caused by strikes or bad weather. Twentyseven days does seem excessive and the strikers will effectively be losing a month's pay, which can't be fun. Hopefully, this will be called off.

Same here. I always try to avoid travelling during the festive periods and summer holidays as the strikes are guaranteed to happen. It must annoy the season ticket holders too - fancy paying for an annual pass and not being able to use it for almost a month?
