British Airways faces renewed strike threat from cabin crew

British Airways cabin crew have stated they are prepared to take new industrial action after their pay demands were refused.

In a consultation ballot, 95% of cabin crew who voted said they would go on strike, with a third of the eligible crew registering a vote.

According to unions, many of BA’s cabin crew are relying on state benefits to supplement basic salaries. BA has offered a pay-rise in line with inflation to cabin crew on contracts issued before 2010.

A BA spokesman said: “We are currently conducting pay talks with all parts of the airline and any talk of industrial action by one of four cabin crew groups is completely speculative.”
