Trip delayed: Ottawa woman stuck in London. United Kingdom | CTV News

& # xD;

An Ottawa woman traveling to Stockholm with her family has been stranded in London, UK, for several days, embroiled in the massive struggles affecting the airline industry.

& # xD;

Monika Knowles and her family were due to arrive in Stockholm early Wednesday morning to visit her sister. Instead, it won’t arrive until Sunday noon.

& # xD;

“It’s a series of unfortunate events,” Knowles told CTV News from her hotel room in London.

& # xD;

Knowles, her husband, son and granddaughters left Ottawa on Tuesday. They were supposed to fly from Toronto to Stockholm, but that flight was canceled because Scandinavian Airlines pilots are on strike.

& # xD;

They had booked an Air Canada connecting flight to London. But that flight left more than three hours late, so they missed the connection.

& # xD;

When they arrived in London, Heathrow Airport had set a limit of 100,000 departing passengers per day.
