Well in my opinion the time has come.
In my opinion that would be a mistake._ BA has kept its cool - made memorable by the calm and untroubled demeanour and body-language of Willie Walsh when he was surrounded in a lobby by a mob of left wing activists._ As I see it, BA are content for Heritage/Legacy/First CC to stay until they reach retirement age on substantially the same T&Cs as they are now._ When I say "substantially" I mean no-one can predict the future - would you believe Icelandic volcanoes becoming more active?_ Given time H/L/F CC will see that they are the "Preserved Cabin Crew" and allowed with respect to remain for as long as they like._ The replacing of retiring CC and the need for extra CC because of extra routes will be catered for by the expansion of Mixed Fleet._ It will take time, but enough of Cabin Crew will see and understand._ They who want the Revised-Final-Offer should be allowed to have it, and they who prefer not to sign should not be disturbed.
