British Airways Cabin Crew Announce More Strike Action

Written by Casey

As if the turmoil caused by the volcanic ash cloud wasn’t enough for travellers to contend with, Unite (the union for British Airways cabin crew) have announced dates for more strike action in May and June.

Following their rejection of BA’s latest offer in the long-running dispute over pay and working conditions, workers will hold walkouts on the following dates:  18-22 May, 24-28 May, 30 May – 3 June and 5-9 June.


Some BA flights will be grounded in the coming weeks

When walkouts were held in March, passengers suffered over the Easter holiday period and British Airways lost millions of pounds in revenue.  These new actions will disrupt travel plans over the Spring Bank Holiday and half-term periods, but are scheduled to end as the World Cup starts in South Africa.

BA has stated that flights from Gatwick and London City Airports would not be affected, and that they aimed to keep most of their longhaul flights from Heathrow on schedule.

As always, it’s a must to check with the airline before you head out to the airport to make sure your flight is still going ahead as scheduled. will keep you up to date on disruptions via our Twitter account,  or you can find out the latest developments on the Official British Airways website.
