Positive news on all fronts with the launch of a new 'duvet' cover (club and first).

That's' sorted that then!

Skipness One has it right

This is a fiasco for BA since while they can maintain schedules it shows up what a rubbish outfit BA have become under WW leadership (He appointed Cruz so he is the one to blame) .

Cuz approach is all short term with no plan whatsoever for growing the airline and protecting the brand.In fact like many Mckinsey monkeys he seems to feel the brand reputation never goes away no matter how much you trash it -experience shows you can live off the brand for a while but when the backlash starts it goes down hill very very quickly.

Cheap fuel is propping up BAs numbers not product or service or efficient operation and when the next recession kicks in and there is much reduced J travel people will go for the airline with decent Y offerings and BA are surely deficient there. Sad but this once great company has just got to 'top of descent'

Longest strike in aviation history

The ongoing dispute between British Airways and it's Cabin Crew, is now the longest period of strike days in aviation history and will reach 70 days of strike action by the 15th August.

With the reported numbers of crew taking part in the action growing week by week, their resolve does not appear to be weakening.

But everything is still fine, its having no effect.....

Seems to be suiting all parties other than the strikers.

BA routes are mostly unaffected and any cancelled BA flights are easily replaced by putting passengers on QR services via DOH, benefiting both parties as QR get the revenue and BA know that they can get more or less everyone where they need to be. BA are, presumably, not paying the strikers anything at the moment either?

QR finding a good use for their crew and aircraft which would otherwise be grounded due to lack of short haul demand and probably making back a good chunk of the money that they are losing due to the current situation.

There is no incentive for either party to change anything. If QR suddenly gain access to the markets they are currently excluded from then it might be a hiccup for BA, but there are plenty of other companies they can go to for aircraft and crew. Yes the QR shorthaul product is much better than that of BAs, which will cause some passengers to comment, but there isn't much they can do. BA won't be offering anything like the QR service any time son and QR, in normal times won't be flying for BA shorthaul either, so the passengers who are BA regulars will be stuck with BA regular service once things settle down again.

So how much is this costing Unite in strike pay?
