This is a shameful distortion of events. The Guardian reports that mixed fleet BA staff have fought for better pay for six months but, despite plans for further action, the airline won’t settle.
Actually, Corbyn‘s Marxist economy has not yet arrived in the UK. We live in a market based economy where the customer and market forces prevail, unless inertia intervenes – the unions are a classic example of inertia damaging what’s best for customers, both in terms of value and quality.
Because of militant unions and poorly motivated staff, BA has been going downhill for years. People like myself are scared to book a BA flight because of flight disruption. If I could use my airmiles, I’d be finished with BA for good. Let’s face it, BA just can’t compete with the likes of Emirates or Air Asia.
Surely, it’s time to withdraw scheduled routes on the back of poor delivery, including strikes and service quality, measured by international benchmarks?
