    British Airways Strike Talks Break Down

    Talks aimed at averting strike action by BA staff have broken down, the TUC has said.
    Marathon talks between officials from Unite and the airline over pay, jobs and working conditions ended without agreement, raising the prospect of crippling walkouts by thousands of employees.

    TUC general secretary Brendan Barber, who had been chairing the talks, said: "Despite a prolonged period of negotiations it has not been possible to reach agreement between BA and Unite.

    "Both parties will be reflecting on the position and the TUC will be keeping in touch but at this stage no further negotiations are planned."

  2. Ha, there's a google ad for 'Upgrade to British Airways' under this thread.

    Not bloody likely...
  3. I'd never fly BA after last few years of chaos... your luggage never arrives with you and the trolly dollies are better looking on Virgin anyway :)
