Other oneworld carriers are also leasing aircraft to BA.

More staff than originally anticipated have decided to come in to work:

Flights reinstated between 20 and 22 March 2010
Since we published our flying schedule for 20, 21 and 22 March the number of cabin crew offering to work as normal has increased significantly – and is expected to grow further.

We are also pleased that the number of other airlines offering their help for the strike period through charters or provision of spare seats has increased from 50 on Monday to more than 60.

These developments have enabled us to reinstate some previously cancelled flights.

What has been reinstated?

We have been able to reinstate a number of flights to the following destinations:

Paris, Nice, Toulouse and Marseille
Glasgow, Manchester, Edinburgh and Aberdeen
Rome, Milan, Genoa, Pisa and Bologna

Seems talks went on until midnight. WW said to be a “very tough negotiator” by BBC just now.

Tony Woodley of Unite now involved….Union worried this will cost the Labour party votes at the next election. Brown urged to “make a call” to ensure the strike is called off…
