Ba cabin crew are seeing sense and returning to work in huge number to enable the BA flight schedule to run..
British Airways said that it would be able to run its planned schedule during this week’s strike after enough cabin crew reported to work today. Cabin crew went on strike at midnight Sunday evening as last-gasp talks failed between the union Unite and the airline over the weekend.
The five-day walk-out is the first of three planned stoppages with the next two strikes due to take place on May 30 through to June 3, and then June 5 until June 9.
The airline spokeswoman confirmed that it would operate about 60% of long-haul flights and 50% of short-haul services from Heathrow. She said that flights from Gatwick and London City airports had not been affected.
