1. The Unite package which was offered could NOT have met structural cost saving objectives and in any rate was only offered in the short term, and was conditional on being reversed at the first sign of an upturn. So stop talking rubbish.

2. BA is losing millions because of intransigent Unions hampering working practices. Deny this? Want proof? Just check out the “Truth about BASSA” thread where you can see idiocy like Union reps refusing a hot towel run in WT+ unless a whole EXTRA crewmember be rostered on every longhaul flight. FACT:

This sort of idiocy is only one example of the time wasted negotiating with Union dullards.

3. The City and BA Board continue to support BA, as is indicated by the continuing rise f the share price. If WW caves into the Unions now, the shareprice will collapse.

4. It is not just BA which is losing millions – this Unite decision to strike cost millions of pounds in lost revenue across the UK and globally for other firms. Most importantly, it also reduces the pot BA has for improving pay and working conditions for its own employees. No-one (except Unite leadership) benefits from this strike. No-one.

5. The word is paltry not “poultry”. Poultry is chicken. But then as you no doubt have a doctorate in economic sciences as well as decades of CEO level experience to inform your frankly laughable comments, you probably knew that.

VintageKrug has rather helpfully restarted this mammoth thread elsewhere.
