British Airways has confirmed this afternoon that the planned industrial action by some London Heathrow cabin crew from Friday 16 June 2017 to Monday 19 June 2017 has been cancelled.
This means that all flights from all airports are due to operate as scheduled and there will be no planned cancellations. This also means that any changes to bookings over the planned strike period can only be made in accordance with the fare rules at the time of booking.
This does not preclude the possibility of any further industrial action but Unite, the union which represents BA cabin crew, is required to give 14 days’ notice to BA.
After a truly terrible weekend for British Airways passengers, BA’s London operation has largely recovered and the airline is expected to operate a full schedule tomorrow, Tuesday 30 May 2017.
There were undoubtedly many failings on the part of BA. Not least the IT issue itself, but also the airline not realising it had a serious operational crisis quickly enough and getting its message out to the public via both traditional “mainstream’ and social media.
As awful as these events are for those caught up in them, it’s worth remembering that they are very rare. The age of digital media outlets all competing for eyeballs and social media means that they are widely publicised worldwide. However, every day tens of thousands of flights operate around the world, largely on time, with baggage and without incident.
Air Traffic Controllers in some regions of Italy are due to take industrial action on the afternoon of Sunday 28 May 2017, the weekend of the late May bank holiday in the UK.
The strike will take place between 1pm and 5pm local time. This is likely to cause disruption with delays and cancellations, albeit on a smaller scale than originally thought. As a consequence the following airlines have issued guidance for affected passengers.
Please note that this page does not provide live flight information so any cancellations that will be listed are proactive cancellations made in advance, and do not necessarily include any delays/cancellations made on the day.
