Will BA Staff’s Strike Effect Your Car Hire In The USA

Hi All,

Very annoyingly, British Airways cabin crew have voted in favour of a 12 day strike over Christmas and new year.

The strike will include over 12,500 cabin crew and will take place from 22 December 2009 until 2 January 2010. Experts have estimated that the disruption could effect the travel plans of up to 1 million passengers due to travel over this period.

Unite members voted 9 to 1 for strike action following a long-running row over pay freezes, job cuts and changes to working practices. It will be the first strike action by BA cabin crew staff since 1997.

Travel on the days before and after the strike is also likely to be disrupted.

The decision was annouced by union leaders at a meeting at Sandown Racecourse this afternoon.

What do you feel about this strike?
Will you be effected?
