Il 20 giugno scorso ho volato sull'ultimo volo commerciale di G-BNLN da CPT a LHR.
29 anni di onorato servizio.

Per che anno e' previsto l'ultimo 744 in uscita?

CONTRO-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...
piccola divagazione, ho visto il 744 retro livery a LHR ieri ed e' uno spettacolo assoluto

Due update veloci, uno buono uno meno.

Parlando delle buone notizie, parrebbe che ci sia un accordo tra compagnia e sindacati sul pay deal.

Parlando di quelle cattive, ho visto la seat map dell'A350. In una parola, pessima. Sembra che BA abbia fatto come i marcioni di Biella che, pur di andare in giro in BMW, prendono il modello più basico - ruote in ferro, autoradio a musicassette, climatizzatore non pervenuto. In questo caso, BA ha deciso di mettere solo due galley, uno in cima e uno in fondo, e per di più piccoli. No toilettes dedicate per World Traveller Plus; loro ed economy, quasi 250 cristiani ricordiamocelo, hanno a disposizione 6 bagni a malapena. Club - 50 cristiani - credo ne abbia due o tre. Il confronto tra il 35K BA e il 35K di CX è impietoso; una sembra French Bee, l'altra una compagnia seria.

Stando alle ultime notizie sembra invece che le parti si siano distanziate nuovamente.


BA pilots pessimistic as pay talks break up

British Airways cockpit crew representatives are pessimistic over the possibility of jump-starting negotiations with the carrier, as a strike ballot deadline approaches.
The strike ballot closes on 22 July, says pilot union BALPA.
It states that two days of conciliation talks hosted by an arbitration service have "broken down without agreement".
BALPA general secretary Brian Strutton describes the situation as "bitterly disappointing", claiming that there is "no point" in continuing because the airline is not prepared to negotiate over the union's proposals.
"Until BA changes its attitude there is little prospect of talks resuming," he says.
BA has previously stated that it believes its benefits and pay structure for pilots is "among the best in the industry".
BALPA is one of three unions, alongside the GMB and Unite, which disclosed last month that they planned to hold ballots for possible industrial action against the carrier. FG

Si... su MF per esempio pare che il motivo del contendere sia il fatto che BA non voglia allargare l’accordo ai CSM, ossia capicabina. Se ce ne sono 700 è esagerare: la questione è veramente di principio e BA sta facendo la figura della bambina dispettosa.

[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]

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.

Si dovrebbe essere nuovo.

Piccolo update sugli scioperi: gli assistenti di volo stanno votando questa settimana, e si annunciano percentuali bulgare a favore delle agitazioni; i piloti credo abbiano già votato ma i risultati non sono ancora usciti.

Da aggiungere una parentesi quantomeno imbarazzante: l’annuncio del “failure to agree” è stato dato dai sindacati il 10/7; il giorno prima Angela Williams, capo di HR nonché mia ex direttrice, ha mandato un messaggio urbi et orbi dicendo “gioite gioite habemus accordum”, perdonatemi il latinorum. Ora, o sono veramente cosí capre (e, conoscendo certi dipartimenti non lo escluderei) o é stato un tentativo, maldestro, di rompere il fronte dei naviganti, specialmente quelli non iscritti al sindacato. Personalmente, almeno a giudicare dalle comunicazioni durante il precedente sciopero direi la due. E, come quelle comunicazioni, dubito sarà un tentativo molto efficace.

Si prospetta un agosto “interessante”.

Dopo le percentuali bulgare di Mixed Fleet a favore dello sciopero e contro il “deal” proposti dalla compagnia, notizia di oggi che il 93% dei piloti facenti parte di BALPA (credo l’80% dei piloti) ha rigettato il medesimo accordo.

Daje Alex, due scioperi in 4 anni che sei al comando, il tutto nell’anno del “centenario”.

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.

Analysis


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.
