Following the 2 recent strikes by Unite members of BA’s mixed fleet cabin crew, Unite have announced further strike dates. The official BA announcement is here.
They intend to hold two further periods of industrial action on:
- 5, 6 and 7 February 2017, and
- 9, 10 and 11 February 2017
BA will publish their contingency plans as follows:
- Tuesday 31 January for customers who have bookings in the first set of three days of threatened industrial action.
- Thursday 2 February for customers who have bookings in the second set of three days of threatened industrial action.
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.
