27 February 2017 10:00

Updated 1/03/2017 - With British Airways contingency plans. British Airways has advised us of proposed industrial action on the 3rd - 9th of March (inclusive) which may affect your journey.

BA have advised that Mixed Fleet Unite, which represents one of their five cabin crew fleets, are to hold further industrial action on Friday 3rd of March until Thursday 9th of March.

At present BA have confirmed that: 

For flights On Friday 3rd, Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th of March

  • All flights to and from London Gatwick will operate as normal
  • All flights to and from London City will operate as normal
  • The vast majority of short haul flights to and from London Heathrow will operate as normal.


For flights to and from London Heathrow, British Airways will be merging a very small number of flights which will mean some customers may travel slightly earlier or later in the day than their original booking. British Airways are contacting affected customers with the options available for them.

If you are flying on any of these days and want to check your travel plans please use:

For flights On Monday 6th, Tuesday 7th, Wednesday 8th, Thursday 9th of March

BA have advised that they are still working on contingency plans for all customers travelling on these days and will publish these details this week.
