A balanced assessment, marky.

However the issue is more stark than you set out. Your comment about the private sector is very apposite.

If BA does not make these changes, it will cease being profitable, and management will keep on being distracted from the matter in hand by managing a Union, rather than managing an airline.

Without a structurally profitable airline, brought about by efficiencies as well as cost cutting, there will be no employer against which BA Cabin Crew can negotiate, as their contracts will be voided, pension entitlement lost and UK plc a poorer place.

Public sector employees simply don’t have these commercial realities against which to contend.
