British Airways Cabin crew ballot for industrial action

One Traveller continue to monitor this very closely and as of 13:00 on the 16th December 2016, no further announcements have been made and it is very much business as usual.


British Airways state:


Mixed Fleet Unite represents about 15 per cent of our cabin crew.


We remain focused on resolving this issue as quickly as possible without any disruption to customers.


We would like to reassure our customers that we have a range of contingency plans in place and will operate the vast majority of our flights as planned if Unite acts upon the result of this ballot.


Currently all flights are operating as normal and therefore all of our normal terms and conditions apply.

Mixed Fleet cabin crew are based at London Heathrow. Therefore services to/from London Gatwick, London City and London Stansted airports are not affected.


Under UK law Unite must give at least seven days' notice of any period of industrial action.


If Unite chooses to announce a period of industrial action, then we will publish full details of our revised flight schedule to give any affected customers the opportunity to adjust their travel plans.


As seven days’ notice has to be given of a potential strike it currently is highly unlikely that any of our Christmas holiday departures will be affected.


Best wishes


The One Traveller Team
