Well done BA!

Quite right - this was NOT contractual, only 'goodwill', so fair play to BA

I wonder if losing perks will be a part for the BA management to consider in their role of saving a company?.

"Don't bite the hand that feeds you".. if certain employees are not willing to play nice, then it is very hard to have any sympathy for them. This was a benefit. Bad employees shouldn't get rewarded ;)

To all you at B.A. who went on strike and messed up my travel arrangements,your perks are now gone,so "O dear,how sad,never mind".Thanks to "It ain`t half hot mum" for the quote.

A perfect example of divide and rule in action.
A perfect example of the result of a seventies style of cutting your nose of to spite you face strike, win nothing... lose even more.

I don't have the patience for anyone that believes they should go on strike in a recession, let alone those that only want to strike on a wet Wednesday afternoon because they haven't the balls to risk striking all out for a result they believe in.

Good psychology by Walsh to get the public even more onside.

I wonder if the 'perk' had been, for example, a childcare creche he would have dared remove it? The travel perk presents a mental picture of all the cabin crew in exotic locations - just what management want us to think.

I don't pretend to know all the difficulties of this dispute, but ( just as Maggie and the miners) there are always two sides, and the real ins and outs will not be known for years to come.
