Update 12th March:
The strikes will take place on the 20th March for 3 days (20th, 21st & 22nd) and then from the 27th March (27th, 28th, 29th & 30th) for 4 days.
BA at the moment state that all flights will operate as normal at the moment
This is one search result I’ll be watching like a hawk over the next 24 hours as the talks have broken down between BA and Unite.
We have booked to fly to New York on the 20th March from Newcastle via Heathrow for SES New York. The earliest that the strikes can start is next Thursday 18th and could go on for 2 weeks. There is a meeting tomorrow at 12pm at the Unite head office to decide on the strike dates.
Personally I think it is all totally ludicrous as the cabin crew will end up without a job at all if BA go bust due to the massive losses that it has month on month. At the moment it is not a viable business and the very last thing they need is to lose trust in the public. If they do strike and the flights to New York are cancelled I think next time we have to fly, BA will be our last choice of airline.
SideNote: Not sure how I managed to get 2 slots in the real time search with the same tweet?
