Why is everyone being so quick to accept the official line? A power supply failure taking down multiple systems across multiple data centers. Possible but it wouldn't be at the top of my list of...

Sorry Litebulbs but any professional who is grumpy with customers because they have a grudge against their boss isn't a professional. Perhaps that is part of the problem - they just aren't suited to...

I have friends who have refused to fly BA since the strike votes in 2009 on the basis they don't know what will happen. I have continued to fly BA along with MPN11 but I'm not sure we are in the...

What has changed?

Been away a while and the discussion seems to be the same ... having got it horribly wrong last time, I'll punt my incorrect thoughts out again:

"It is not because BA want to sack crew" - disagree. I don't believe BA want to sack all striking crew. But if Unite handed them the opportunity to sack the "ring leaders" \ key extremists then I...

Devil I want my nanny state back

BA have no reason to get bogged down in such silliness - leave the playground antics to the strikers.

Judging by how they have played this so far, I suspect they will play a waiting game and let...
