Nationwide Border Force airport customs & immigration strike on Nov 9.

Hi guys, I am due to fly out on the 9th of November, thankfully have been able to miss all strikes till date. However, it seems I may be out of luck now... With the strike looking to proceed, would this mean that I will not be able to board the flight? I have contacted Japan Airlines to discuss my options, however they were very limited in their advice, and instructed me to contact the Australian Border Force... Any tips or suggestions would be appreciated. I have a really important up coming event which I need to make, on the 11th. Thanks

Being discussed at http://www.ausbt.com.au/nationwide-border-force-airport-customs-immigration-strike-on-nov-9 – you'd be able to board your flight but expect long delays, so I'd suggest doing online checkin and arriving at the airport as early as you can.

Impossible to know, if this goes ahead, how bad it could get. Delays may be so long that crew run out of hours, if they wait for pax yet to be processed. Arriving aircraft may not be able to find a gate for ages if others held awaiting pax. Or, planes may just depart on or near time without the passengers held up in queues. If your event on the 11th is really important Wali, can you rebook and get out earlier? 

Any way you look at this strike it's a disgrace, and an embarrassment for Australia.
