BA to fly over 70% of schedule during next strikes
May 27th, 2010 by elisa

British Airways plans to fly 70% of its long haul schedule and over 55% of short haul flights from Heathrow during the next five-day cabin crew strike planned between 30th May and 3rd June.

Talks between the airline and union to try and resolve the dispute before this next round of industrial action are expected to resume tomorrow (Friday).

“Due to the numbers of crew wanting to work normally at Gatwick, all flights will continue to operate as scheduled during the very busy half term break as families fly out to many popular holiday destinations,” BA said. “Flights at London City airport will also operate as normal.”

A statement said: “At this stage British Airways expects to fly more than 75% of customers who hold a booking between May 30 and June 3. This equates to around 65,000 customers flying each day.”

The airline said “many thousands more” will be able to use seats secured on more than 50 other airlines. Other passengers can be re-booked onto alternative BA flights departing within the next 355 days. Refunds are also available for those whose flights have been cancelled.

People in the UK wanting to rebook flights can visit the airline’s website or use the free phone number 0800 727 800.
