Sky and Sunday times report figures supplied by BA. Was BA’s endemic smoke and mirrors in play again with figures beefed up with volunteer crew? It is difficult to rationalise BA’s claims against the facts on the ground as independent reporters witnessed T5 being a ghost town and pilots taking off and landing a series of empty planes in order to maintain the illusion that flight were not cancelled.
But hey Krug don’t feel bad, Walsh managed to delude thousands of his own staff into invoking a crisis by stating “BA is in a fight for survival” in ’09 and appealed to staff to work without pay, only to reward himself with an 11% pay increase plus bonus of £1.65m.
Problem is I doubt if they will be suckered twice.
Continue to believe BA is a moral, ethical company who would not stoop to bullying, victimising and intimidation. Krug – as you seem to be wise on all things BA, is there another airline who has incurred more fines as BA has for corrupt practices?
