My BA LGW-MAN flight on the 23/3/10 was operated by a Jet2 737 with 142 seats. A fairly full flight had three cabin crew who coped with the refreshment service with efficient speed.
Two weeks ago BA LHR-MAN an A319 with 126 seats had SIX, yes 6, cabin crew!!
Perhaps Willie Walsh is right…things do need to change.
