Ba will run all flights if cabin crew strike

Ba cabin crew The end could be in sight for the ridiculous strike actions by BA Cabin crew, plus no more strikes would be possible till after the school holidays.

The British Airways boss Willie Walsh says the airline should be able to run 100% of flights if cabin crew take any further strike action.

Cabin crew union Unite this week started balloting its 11,000 members on BA’s latest peace deal which includes two guaranteed rises in basic salary from February 2011.

What is more interesting to note, is the Unite union are not making any recommendation about whether members should accept the deal – a move which has been welcomed by BA.

The ballot is expected to take two weeks and, even if the deal is rejected, any further strike action is unlikely to take place until late August at the latest.

Walsh said in an interview on Wednesday that he believed they could run 100% of services if there is further strike action.

BA has been hit by 22 days of strike action since mid-March. During the last five-day strike, the airline said it ran 80% of long-haul flights and 60% of short-haul from Heathrow, although Unite has disputed the airline’s figures.
