That's why for the last 3 days I haven't booked any clients on BA for those days. BA will feel it since I only sell C and F class... They better solve this quickly, business passengers don't like those things and remeber them for a long time....

I saw this too, if there is a strike, its gonna be a big mess and BA is trying to limit its exposure, however, its a bit late as I would imagine the majority of passengers travelling on BA next weekend are already ticketed. This is the first time that I remember an airline taking a premptive action such as this, whatever the result, its gonna cost BA lots of money and lost revenue, even if there is not a strike.

I sure hope they can avert the strike - but they certainly are preparing for something serious... yesterday, we already received a message from BA informing us as to how we could process any rebooking requests because of the strike, something that tells me that they, indeed, are worried...

BA will get a reputation! Thye had problems with the CSRs last summer. I believe that their checkin agents at LHR were striking. I never had to check-in at LHR since I was connecting onto ATH from JFK. It wasn't bad for me but I remember the stories. I had a pleasant experience so I will be flying them again. People won't try them with this as their only memory of BA.

Booking is now open again. And they have some bargains - I've booked a MAN/LHR/MAN day return for Friday 27th August for under £60. Usually, a day return on a Friday would mean paying the unrestricted fare of about £270!
