BA sees drop in passengers
London, July 6, 2010
British Airways (BA) said it carried 11.1 per cent fewer passengers last month – reflecting the impact of strike action by cabin crews.
The airline carried 2.57 million passengers last month, down from 2.93 million in June 2009, said a report in our sister publication, the Gulf Daily News.
BA has lost some GBP150 million ($227 million) because of a series of strikes by cabin crew this year.
The Unite union last week postponed a ballot for further walkouts to give workers time to consider a new offer on pay and working conditions from BA. – TradeArabia News Service
