Reply To: BA Cabin Crew Strike – Consolidated Thread

Back to Forum


geohoveuk… in any case, staff travel puts bums on seats and is a neat source of pocket money for BA.

Having read your views on the and in particular your last one, I have to tell you that you are wrong as well as seriously ill informed. Staff Travel barely covers it’s costs for BA and indeed the tax liability, which BA picks up for it’s staff, probably costs the firm money. Staff travel for most staff is a perk, it is certainly not a contractual obligation. Crew use it to allow themselves to live the sort of lives most dream of. Take any domestic flight and yoiu will see crew using these services to commute. Other live all over Europe.
This is a proportionate response from a business that is being held to ransom and whos very existance is put in jeopardy by a minority of staff and crw ed by reactionary 1970 though back unions.

I should add that in the event of any planned industrial action, all staff in BA will be banned from using staff travel as they have in the past. The only exception…..commuting crew……
