The problem with this thread is that it is getting too heated. In part that is because a surprisingly large number of people – cabin crew and passengers among them – really care about BA. THAT is why we have this debate about BA’s strike and not about the strike on the railways and the tubes – RMT are just as destructive as UNITE but put simply, we don’t care so much about the tubes.

Let me summarise:

The cabin crew care about BA – and are having an awful time of it

Passengers care about BA – and are having an awful time of it

Shareholders care about BA – and are having an awful time of it

Management care about BA (let us be generous here) – and are having an awful time of it

UNITE … doesn’t care about BA (or their members very much, despite the faux protestations on the TV), and isn’t getting hurt.

There is no hope of a sensible solution when the union causing the mayhem is the only participant who isn’t hurt by their actions
