    Am delighted (even though wasn't travelling).

    Strikers should all be sacked imho!! Plenty of other people out there who would willingly have jobs at this time of the year!
  • BA cabin staff would do well remember there are probably several hundred former flyglobespan and XL cabin staff who would be more than happy to do their jobs and agree to the new working conditions.

    I don't think that anybody is suggesting that workers rights are 'done away with', but rather that they assert their rights by different means. If an employee's contract has been substantially breached they will receive an appropriate remedy through an Employment Tribunal.
    Gone ... or have I?

    Yeah like that's what I'm suggesting :rolleyes:

    Some people should be thankful they have jobs during the worst recession for a long long time - that's what I'm saying! Plenty of people have taken pay cuts so that redundancies can be avoided.

    If it had been a 1 or 2 day strike that would be one thing, but 12 days over Christmas is going too far. That is a move deliberately designed to cause as much suffering and inconvenience as possible.

    I'll be booking a flight for February soon and I'll do my best to avoid using BA because of what has happened in the past few days. So well done UNITE you really are doing a good job of protecting the future of your employees - not!

    ^^How much do the Union leaders earn then?

    Enough to make sure that they'll have a very happy Christmas while BA workers will suffer scorn from people travelling. Certainly, no-one is going to trust BA for a while with their holiday travel!
