Reply To: BA asks office staff to volunteer as cabin crewBack to Forum
As someone who is close to staff at BA, it is pleasing to hear that the first batch of “cabin crew converts” are going through training on 25 January with the next groups over the following five weeks, so they will all be ready to work during the strike.
Internally, a few new aircraft types have been added to the flight planning systems, which indicate that BA are preparing to use a third party company to fly their customers to their destinations. Another move to ensure BA does not leave their customers stranded. BA already use a third party at Gatwick.
