Strike Action – British Airways.
Once again, British Airways cabin crew have been considering strike action due to working conditions. The latest threat has been halted due to an agreement between the trade union Unite and management. A new proposal between the airlines cabin crew, unions and management will be put to ballot next month.
A Pattern of Strike Action.
BA was subjected to strike action by cabin crew last year. You would have thought they settled all disputes, but apparently not. It has been said that trade union Unite, will recommend its members to accept the new deal. That I think remains to be seen.
British Airways management are happy about the proposals, and to have reached an agreement. Which they think will consider the rights and conditions of the cabin crew workers, and will provide better services for it’s passengers.
If you have flights booked with BA, you’ll be happy to learn that there will be no immediate disruptions. I hope the latest agreements between the unions, cabin crew and management is accepted and stays firm. If not, and strike action takes place. Keep up to date with the latest information to avoid disruption to your booking.

BA Strike Action.
Keeping you up to date with the latest on the BA Strike Action. It seems the possibility of strike action by BA cabin crew still looms. The Court of appeal has ruled that strike action can continued as planned, as it overruled an injuction made by the high court.
Many travellers will be very nervous about their flights booked through BA over the next few weeks. BA has maintained that flights from Gatwick Airport and London City Airport will operate a full service.
The BA Strike Action will affect flights from Heathrow and other airports, which should operate services at around 50-60%. My advice, call before you travel and make sure your flight is not affected.

British Airways Strike.
You’ve probably read something about the possiblity of a British Airways Strike. The current situation is that British Airways (BA) flights will be operating as scheduled over the next few weeks. The airline won a last-minute injunction against planned strike actionby cabin crew staff.
The high court blocked the pending British Airways Strike on the grounds that the Unite trade union had failed to carry out a proper ballot. Before the ruling, BA was facing a total of 20 days of strikes between 18 May and 9 June.
The airline issued a statement in response to the judgement to block the British Airways Strikes. BA said it was ‘delighted’ that Unite’s plans for “extreme and unjustified strike action” cannot go ahead.
A number of previously cancelled long-haul flights from London Heathrow will be reinstated, and a full programme should be operational. BA will offer all of it’s scheduled services from London City and Gatwick airports as planned.

On a slightly different note, the Civil Aviation Authority will be implementing new measures to reduce the flight disruption caused by the volcanic eruption in Iceland.
