British Airways strike may affect five Dubai flights
A strike by cabin crew of the British Airways is set to cause much inconvenience to a large number of travelers. Five flights to or from Dubai, according to the airline, are likely to be canceled following the protest by Unite, the cabin crew union.
BA105 from London Heathrow to Dubai is unlikely to fly today, tomorrow or Monday. Similarly, BA104 flight from Dubai to Heathrow would not head for its destination on Monday and Tuesday. However, no flight from Abu Dhabi would suffer.
Meanwhile, the British Airways have been making efforts to break the dead lock by holding negotiations with the striking union which has been demanding hike in pay and perks.
A spokesman of BA said, "We have 30 BA planes going in and out of the UAE every day. Where possible, we have been contacting customers directly by e-mail or telephone to tell them of the situation."
Most of the passengers are reported to have either re-booked their flights or re-scheduled their flights to avoid any inconvenience. The airline said that passengers who would miss the flight are entitled to a full refund.
