I was able to get home on Friday, and I did so aboard a BA aircraft.
Alasdair, as you well know most (not all) of these Volunteer Cabin Crew are performing recency from Gatwick, which has only been marginally affected by the snow.
The decision BA took to stop the flying programme exLHR on Saturday has minimised the numbers of crew and passengers stranded downroute.
Most issues will be caused by people not being able to get into work themselves because of their own issues with the snow, and are absolutely nothing to do with BA’s successful Volunteer Cabin Crew, who recognise the damage BASSA has inflicted on the company they work for, and are doing their bit to ensure its future success. VCC have nothing whatsoever to do with the issues unfolding at LHR.
