Unite (the great Union) is calling its SAS baggage handlers to a serie of 3 days strike starting on the ... 22nd December (what a coincidence). This will affect some flights at LHR and ABZ.

If the Eurostar drivers were diabolically smart, they would have added to the co-incidence.

Me thinks they (Unions) may be under estimating public backlash. Times are a bit hard, and people will not appreciate their hard earned currency, which they scraped and saved for holiday trips, being p'ed away by these actions.

Just my 1 pence/ 2 cents.



I don't understand everything I don't know about this.

Dec 22-23

It means the 3days BA has to get flights back to normal, are promptly wasted as the next strike starts.

BA is not afftected by this:

The baggage handlers' strike is for SAS Ground Services..It affects travellers on Turkish, Emirates and Thai airlines at Heathrow and KLM, Air France, Wideroe and Atlantic at Aberdeen only.

It looks like it might be a grim Xmas at LHR , what with the snow threatening tomorrow and then the strikes.

I do think that the timing is very callous though.
