Reply To: Unite/BASSA to Strike 20/3 for 3 Days, 27/3 for 4 Days

I’m used to being called much worse!
To be fair to VK I’m sure it’s a typo which should read “But”!! – the letters are adjacent and devices with predictive text can be tricky. On the iPhone, the Gaelic word “Slainte” meaning “Cheers” (literally “Health”) gets converted to “Elaine” – with obvious suspicion amongst recipients of my message!!

I also have a shorthaul connection at LHR on Tuesday 23rd. My domestic leg is from Glasgow, does BA have crews & aircraft based there? – I recall the engineering facility being closed – or do the crew of the last flight from LHR the previous day overnight and return the next morning. Not sure if it makes any difference to whether the flight would operate or not anyway. Saving grace might be it doesn’t run on each of the 3 strike days, so the crew and aircraft from Friday evening will still be there on Tuesday morning!

Come on ye BA!!
