Great! The previous one was too long!
Btw. why the new tunnels are so wide at the beginning? It looks like one track is on the upper and the other on the lower level, but the space is maybe for even 4 tracks.

Exactly, the tunnel has two levels between Zona Universitària and Europa | Fira, and there is a track on each level.

The tunnel is wide in order to allow platforms to be built within the tunnel, thus reducing costs and disruption on the surface; as you can see there's no space for extra tracks at stations, as platforms precisely occupy said space, which is mostly empty in the parts of the tunnel between stations.

But this space is usually well used to install a track who communicates the two levels of the tunnel (at 3:15 of the first video appears)

Thanks for confirming these travel times. According to Google Maps (and TMB maps) the total travel time is about one hour. According to these planners, it is still faster to travel from Collblanc to the aeroport by Aerobus (combined with other means) than by metro.

Not true!

By metro:
-From Collblanc to Aeroport T2: 26 min.
-From Collblanc to Aeroport T1: 30 min.

Faster and cheaper than Aerobús+other mean to Collblanc!

GoogleMaps is wrong, try Citymapper better, it is more accurate!

Due to metro strike:
-A train every 11 minutes at peak hours.
-A train every 22 minutes the rest of opening hours.

Same for Wednesday!

Let's be clear, there was an important strike today on the Metro, with 30% of the trains on valley hours, and 50% on peak hours, that's why some automatic lines where having that frequencies.

The user @davroca5 has posted this photo from Line 9 Sud around 8 pm this afternoon:

In English you don't say "valley hours", you say "off-peak".

Lines 9 and 10 are driverless.
Why are they so affected by the strike?
I would understand if Barcelona had a small subway network but the metro in Barcelona is rather large.

Well, Barcelona now has 180 metro stations and 146 km. Not bad!

But when there is a metro strike there are trains every 11 or 22 minutes instead every 3-6 minutes. So the capacity is not the same and there are some problems with crowds, mainly at peak hours!

The day of the strike some stations had 66% less passengers!

Thank you, that's why what I said I don't understand why driverless lines are so affected by the strike in a large network like Barcelona.
A large network normally means that you could always find some workers for a normal operation in driverless lines.

In Paris even during the big strike in 2007, the line 14 ran normally.

Actually TMB wanted 100% of normal service in the automatic lines during the strike, but workers unions said NO.
The workers of the automatic lines did not go to the control centre and inside the trains and the stations. Automatic lines cannot work without staff for emergencies and other things...

A strecht of line 10 sud is not paralyzed, just delayed.
Barcelona mayor wants to open the line 10 South with just 2 or 3 stations in 2017!

Is the new subway service to the airport well trafficked?

The map just says Zona Universitària - Sagrera is paralyzed, which is true, while it says that line 10 sud will open in 2018.

Honestly, I don't believe anything will open in 2017. There are only 20 months left until the end of next year, so they should really hurry in order to open two stations before that term expires.

It seems so, at least with regards to Terminal 1, where metro is the only rail alternative to go anywhere.

Terminal 2 has a railway station with direct trains to the city centre, so passengers seem to prefer the faster one-seat ride than using the metro, which involves at least a transfer to get to the city centre.

L9 sud has got a lot of more passengers from El Prat Estació to Zona Universitària and vice versa, than from Barcelona stations to the airport...

During trade fairs and congresses the line is packed with "yuppies" going from Airport T1 or T2 to FIRA station (fair venue).
