I like the airline, I like the fact that the national flag colours are on the tail, and I certainly won't be deterred by talk of strikes.
If they strike, they strike, and like everyone else I'll be annoyed, and make alternative arrangements if I can. What I won't do is plunge into an orgy of gloom and despair over a newspaper article.
My personal opinion is that the real culprits in all this are a relatively small number of staff and some militant union officials. I've seen it all before, in other companies, and it's a tragic situation. We have a national airline of which we could be proud, and it's being systematically destroyed by a few misguided people. Some of those people might well be among the company's management for all I know - I'm not blaming the union entirely. I would be very sad if BA was not around - I've flown in their aircraft many times over many years, and the experience has been largely a good one.
