British Airways’ reputation will recover; indeed many posters here clearly support the strong leadership of Willie Walsh necessary to cut Unite down to size and restore sanity to remuneration in the round.
I think it is very sad that Union leaders have led their members to lose this staff travel perk, but lose it they will, and this is further evidence of how striking simply doesn’t work.
People will continue to value the excellent fully flat beds in Club World, the regular, direct flights at convenient times, the superb lounges both at LHR (where there are no less than eight) and most importantly consistent branded lounges abroad, as well as innovative services such as direct flight between New York JFK and London’s City Airport.
British Airways. Since 1924.
