So BA cabin crew will strike for 4 days then a 3 if no deal is reached.
Anyone see any justification for their action?
I flew BA long haul last week and found the cabin crew to be terse, unhelpful and most seemed to think the passengers a nuisance. The complete opposite of my normal airline Virgin.
If I never flew BA again it would be too soon.
As an aside the much criticized Terminal 5 at Heathrow was brilliant. Fast and efficient security and immigration and baggage that was on the console when we walked up to it. From landing to being out the terminal - 30 minutes.
for the BA staff - their attitude (or that of their union) seems to be hardening, and the travelling public will vote with their wallets. This isn't something that people feel they will weather - if you've booked a flight for a holiday, and see it threatened by striking cabin crew you'll think twice before booking the same airline again.
The airline will pay a heavy price and so, therefore, will the strikers.
Is that in disputes of this nature we never get to know to fine detail. For instance it is was reported that BA cabin staff are the best paid and best conditions of any airline So what to Ba cabin crew get paid and compare it to Virgin or Thomas Cook etc? Let us judge if the strike is justified
