LONDON: Despite proposed strike by cabin crew, British Airways said that its operations would not be affected due to the protest.
It claimed that all of its flights from London’s Gatwick and London City airports will operate as scheduled and a “majority of flights to and from London’s Heathrow Airport.”
It also revealed that a very few flights will be merged to and from Heathrow which means some customers will have to travel on flights that depart earlier or later than the ones they had originally booked.
The airline said it’s contacted passengers to apprise them of the change in schedule and to accommodate them in other flights.
Around 4,000 employees (which make up 15 per cent of the airline’s cabin crew – will go on strike on Tuesday, January 10, and Wednesday, January 11. During these two days, nearly 200,000 people are expected to fly.
Some British media reports have claimed that approximately 50 flights would be cancelled during the two-day period.
