Ba.com has just been updated
http://www.britishairways.com/travel...lightops/public/en_gb?p_faqid=3029

passengers can either have a refund if they do not wish to fly with easyjet or accept the changes and product differences.
It looks like they have covered most of the situations that passengers will be confronted with.

hope this helps any one thats snookered!.

I shouted at the TV with one comment that she had not heard anything about it yet. BA and EXY have been sending out message after message to passengers

Quote:
Dear customer

Following easyjet's announcement in October 2007 of its intention to acquire GB Airways, easyjet has today announced that the acquisition of GB Airways has now been completed.

British Airways is therefore no longer selling tickets on GB Airways flights.

Bookings for travel on a GB Airways flight before March 30, 2008 are not affected. Customers with bookings for travel on GB Airways on or after March 30, 2008 should visit the latest flights news pages on ba.com for more information.

All BA flights with a flight number between BA6760 and BA 6999 are operated by GB Airways.

We have recently announced new British Airways services from London Gatwick to Malta, Paphos, Poznan, Genoa, Antalya, Faro, Malaga, Ibiza, Gibraltar, Palma, Tunis and Alicante. For everyday low fares to these destinations, please visit ba.com.

Warm regards

British Airways

I am booked on GB to Tunis out LGW-TUN 23rd march and return 26th March so it will be one of the last inbound GB flights from TUNIS . The timetable is a frightener for the crew. It appears that the flight leaves Gatwick 1910 arrives 2300 the night before and leaves at 0700 arriving at 0855 . Would this be a one trip journey for the crew as it appears they only have 6 hours between flights after they have left the aircraft and then rejoined .ASs we would say in the bus industry it is a split shift and some!
Maybe a GB crew would be able to say and I am looking forward to one of the last free meals given by them.
The other unusual thing is that BA are only selling CLUB on all the remaining flights that week. Is this deliberate so there will be no one on the flights? I am steerage but booked with Thomas Cook holidays who seem to have booked a block of seats.

The LGW-TUN-LGW is indeed a split shift. I'm MAN crew but apparently LGW crews don't particularly enjoy it as by the time you arrive at the hotel and wind down, there is not much rest involved.


Proud to fly from Manchester!

I hope they have a good supply of booze to give away on the last few flights!!! Even though they are morning ones?? Thanks for the info and I agree they are not very good times for the crew and even a bit naughty as the crew will be tired anyway even if they do get some sleep

It's legal so nothing naughty about it. A very similar situation occurs with UEFA/Champions League flights where the crew layover for 7 or so hours downroute. It is just one of those
more unpopular rosterings so i gather.

As for drinks, they only pay for what they use.

Many of Gordon Ramsey's passengers weren't willing to pay the going rate and preferred Mcdonalds. Consumer choice rules.

So what if you get a small meal and free drinks, an airline is there to get you there. Thats all short haul European's want these days. They would rather fly cheaply and hence more often. Little room for sentiment.

On a final though, GB Airways have been "Mcdonalds" ex MAN for 18 months now.
