Following the recent strikes by Unite members of BA’s mixed fleet cabin crew, Unite have stepped up their strike schedule with a further 4 dates. The official BA announcement is here.
They intend to hold a further period of industrial action on:
- Wednesday 22, Thursday 23, Friday 24 and Saturday 25 February 2017
The strike only affects flights to and from Heathrow. If you are flying on the strike days the chances are you will still get to your destination but it may not be at the original time. In the previous strikes BA cancelled a number of flights including some long haul, but rebooked passengers on a different flight on the same day. They have also chartered other aircraft and crew to do some of the flights as well.
Further information on their contingency plans will be published over this weekend. You should be contacted if your flight is affected but it’s probably best to keep an eye on your booking in Manage My Booking just in case.
