I was 10, visiting relatives in New Hampshire with my family. We were to fly home to SAC/Sacramento Municipal (then) Airport via TWA and SFO. TWA was on strike, and they couldn't rebook us on anything else for a week. That was on AA, BOS-JFK (727-123) and AA JFK-SFO (707-323), getting in after midnight. My folks didn't want to wait for the morning SFO-SAC flight on West Coast (WC), so they rented a car and drove. Needless to say, I was disappointed in that last bit.

Cue "The Great Airplane Strike" by Paul Revere & the Raiders. The work stoppage lasted long enough for this song to get recorded, released, and become a mid-charting hit.

Wish I didn't have to be a subscriber to the LA Times to see it. I was working for TWA as a mechanic at the time and never did recover the lost wages experienced as a result of that strike.

I recall a memorable flight when at 13, flying Delta / LAX-DFW-MCO during that time. Delta must not have been affected.
