What You Should Know about a Potential British Airways Strike

March 3, 2010 | Posted in: Ask Rick,Europe,News

british airways strike

An update on a potential strike by cabin crew members, from British Airways CEO Willie Walsh: 

  • No strike date has been announced
  • If there is a strike, the airline will get seven days notice
  • Talks between the two sides continue

And British Airways says its flight schedule will continue in the event of a strike, as close to “normal” as possible – at least, that’s the plan: 

London City Airport: All BA flights will operate, including service to New York

Gatwick Airport: BA’s long-haul schedule will operate, as well as half its short-haul flights

Heathrow Airport: BA will operate a “substantial portion” of its long-haul flights, as well as a “good number” of short-haul flights

Walsh also says they now have 1,000 volunteers who have trained as cabin crew. Also, the airline has “arranged to secure seats from other carriers” so BA can get you to your destination even if they can’t do it themselves.
