Reply To: BA strikers to lose travel perks

Back to Forum


I dont read the DM………i dont belong in a union………..i dont work for an airline……….i dont get ‘perks’ of free/discounted flights……i dont get perks full stop………..i’m just of the unfortunate people who rely on an airline to get me to where i want to go. Funnily enough i flew with Ryanair last weekend. We got away on time, we returned on time, it may have beeen a little short on leg room, it may have been cattle class, but it got there…….unlike a few friends, who didnt!

The point is that the general public, who are fed up with it all, will eventually stop booking with BA and the union will then be fighting on the grounds of redundancy, and then probably strike as a result……and so it goes.

It’s modern economics and business practice to cut costs. Striking is not the answer, when will the unions ever learn.
