British Airways CEO, Willie Walsh, called on staff to “pull together” during cabin crew’s proposed strike, stating thousands of employees have offered to help the carrier during the industrial action (, 01-Mar-2010). Mr Walsh also reiterated the carrier’s plans to take away travel perks from those who take part in the strike action.

British Airways:
“Thousands of you have come forward to back BA in a range of ways, including volunteering to work alongside our cabin crew who decide not to support the strike…I am confident that we will all do our best for our customers and ensure we can fly as many aircraft as possible to keep disruption to a minimum. If the strike goes ahead, we will need closer teamwork than ever before. We must all think of our customers and do everything we can to protect their travel plans and to retain their faith in British Airways as much as possible,” Willie Walsh, CEO. Source:, 01-Mar-2010.
