British Airways will not step down to Unite over the cabin crew dispute. The airline is fully prepared to run a nearly full service if another strike does happen, chief executive Willie Walsh has said.
The distressed BA boss showed no sign of giving in to Unite during a speech to travel professionals. He said it was not “entirely” the union’s fault that an agreement had yet to be met 12 months into the dispute.
The dispute between cabin crew members and their employer started when British Airways revealed changes to working practices, reducing flight attendant numbers on flights and proposing a pay freeze.
Walsh has repeatedly stated that he refuses to back down in regards to the cabin crew.
