Striking employees lose travel benefits
British Airways carried out their threats against their currently on-strike employees to strip them of their travel perks.
Staff who joined the strike last week will now lose discounted and occassionally free airfare. This decision comes after last weeks identical threat to remove travel perks by British Airways Chief Executive Willie Walsh.
Regardless of the strike, British Airways has said that they will be able to run a full operation out of London Gatiwck and London City Airport this weekend because many employees will cross the picket line in the next several days.
