Airlines to increase capacity during British Airways strike

12-May-2010 9:07 AM

British Airways union, Unite, confirmed it is open to resuming negotiations with the carrier, after announcing plans yesterday for strike action in four blocks of five days, from 18-May-2010 through to 09-Jun-2010 (Bloomberg, 11-May-2010).

Conservative Party: “Given the politically and financially unstable times we are in, the last thing passengers want is to be held to ransom by the threat of a summer of strikes. I would urge the two sides to do all they can to avoid creating further disruption to the travelling public,” Theresa Villiers, Transport Spokesperson. Source:, 11-May-2010.
