New British Airways cabin crew strike dates announced

If you thought that British Airways ‘mixed fleet’ cabin crew had given up their fight for improved working conditions, you were wrong.  Whilst a new pay deal has been agreed in principle, it includes sanctions against crew who went on strike which are not seen as acceptable.

‘Mixed Fleet’ crew who are members of Unite will be striking on 16th, 17th, 18th and 19th June.

Because of the myriad of BA cabin crew fleets, this will not have a huge impact on services.  During previous strikes, British Airways has managed to ensure that every passenger flew on the day they were meant to fly.  That said, some flights to popular destinations will be merged together and some passengers will find themselves on chartered aircraft.

The strike will only impact Heathrow flights.  Gatwick and London City flights will operate as normal.

  1. We are flying back from Vancouver (just changed to mixed).
    If they close the full F service, presumably you still get the sear?

  2. Hhhmm, the AVIOSUK promo code doesn’t seem to be working today. Annoying! Just placed a £50 order, which along with yesterdays, would have got me over the £100 threshold.
