piccola divagazione, ho visto il 744 retro livery a LHR ieri ed e' uno spettacolo assolutoCONTRO-ORDINE COMPAGNI!!!
Tutti e sei i voli cancellati. Mails inviate ai clienti con offerte di rimborsi. Pare che questa sia la ragione:
enorme figura da cioccolatai da parte di certuni in BA. Conoscendo chi sono quei certuni (gli stessi che stavano organizzando una giornata "porte aperte" in Engineering senza chiedere ad Engineering se potevano usare gli hangar) io spero che vengano invitati ad andarsene quanto prima...
Prenotato primo volo su A350. Curioso di provare CWS per la prima volta... sempre che non cambino da qui a novembre.
Stando alle ultime notizie sembra invece che le parti si siano distanziate nuovamente.Parlando delle buone notizie, parrebbe che ci sia un accordo tra compagnia e sindacati sul pay deal.

Lo sciopero é quasi certo. Mi era sembrato di capire che si fosse sull’orlo di un accordo con unite e GMB, poi sfumato perché i CSM (capicabina) non erano inclusi. I piloti di BALPA, invece, hanno rifiutato l’accordo tout court.[OT ma non troppo] Sciopero/i personale aeroportuale di Londra-Heathrow, date (confermate) come segue:
26-27/7, 5-6/8, 23-24/8.
Se verrà confermato anche lo sciopero BA per (more-or-less) quel periodo, ci sarà davvero da ridere (for all the wrong reasons, needless to say). [/OT ma non troppo]
Si dovrebbe essere nuovo.Ma ilBA585 è una nuova rotazione sul LIN-LHR?
sembra sia attivo con la W19. Mi ricordavo l’ultimo volo fosse quello delle 7PM

per una volta sono contento di volare AZ per rientrare ad Agosto per le feriee mo so caxxi...anche la Corte d'Appello ha dato l'ok agli scioperi.
British Airways pilots set for summer strike
British Airways has lost an appeal aimed at halting planned strike action by its pilots.The British Airline Pilots' Association (Balpa) voted in favour of industrial action on 22 July, after three days of negotiations failed to resolve the dispute.
BA-owner IAG sought an injunction to prevent the strike in the High Court, but it was overturned.
The airline then appealed and the Court of Appeal ruled on Wednesday.
This opens the way for the pilots to name dates for a potential strike, which would likely fall in August - one of the busiest months for holidays.
However, Balpa has not announced any strike dates today. The union says it is required by law to provide BA with 14 days' notice of any proposed strike action.
British Airways said it was "disappointed" that Balpa had "chosen to threaten the holidays of thousands" of customers.
If you have a flight booked with British Airways in the coming weeks then you will naturally be concerned. But as things stand you don't need to panic because the pilots union Balpa has not set a date for a strike.
By law the union has to give BA at least two weeks' notice and they can call a strike any time between now and January. After this latest court victory for the pilots, logic dictates that the airline will have to offer some kind of compromise in order to avert a strike.
On a single day in the summer BA flies around 145,000 passengers. A strike would cause significant damage to the reputation and finances of British Airways and its parent group IAG. But BA will be preparing for all eventualities.
Balpa teamed up with other unions Unite and GMB to submit a joint pay claim in November.
Then in July, BA offered pilots a pay increase worth 11.5% over three years, which was accepted by Unite and GMB but rejected by Balpa.
BA says the offer is "fair", but Balpa argues its members deserve better as the airline has been making healthy profits.
After the latest court ruling, Balpa general secretary Brian Strutton said: "The Court of Appeal has today rightly dismissed BA's attempt to injunct this industrial action on a technicality.
"BA's attempt to defeat the democratic view of their pilots in court, rather than deal with us across the negotiating table, has sadly wasted huge amounts of time and money that could have been put into finding a peaceful resolution. Now the window for negotiation and compromise is closing fast."
In 2018, BA-owner IAG reported a pre-tax profit of €3bn (£2.8bn), up almost 9.8% on the previous year, and declared a special dividend of €700m.
British Airways contributed £1.96bn to that, up 8.7% from 2017's figures.
Ahead of possible strikes, the airline advised customers to review their contact details on its website or contact their travel agent.
It added it would "pursue every avenue" to find a solution to the dispute.

* Early construction costs have risen from £650m in April 2018, to £1,600m in the autumn of 2018 to £2,800m today
