Officials at Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport asked travelers to delay their arrivals at the airport on April 23 as terminals reached capacity and a backlog formed amid an unexpected strike by baggage staff of the Dutch airline KLM.

As long lines formed inside, the airport published an alert at 11.30 am saying the terminal had become overcrowded “partly due to the strike,” and asked travelers with flights scheduled up to 3 pm not to arrive at the airport.
