UK: BA cabin crew to strike again on Feb 9 – not too much disruption

British Airways cabin crew, represented by the Unite trade union, will strike again Feb. 9 in an ongoing dispute over pay. The cabin crew just ended a three-day strike Feb. 7.


Around 100 members of the airline’s mixed fleet personnel, who work on both short- and long-haul services, lobbied legislators at the Houses of Parliament in London Feb. 7 to gain support for their action.


The Unite union said the latest bout of industrial action had seen flights canceled and wet-leased aircraft brought in from several airlines—including Titan Airways, Vueling and Thomson Airways—to cover for affected services.


A BA spokesman said the three-day dispute that ended Feb. 7 had seen “a few” flights merged, but that “all customers got to where they needed to go.”
