Yes. Pilot strikes. Nice timing, isn’t it!

BALPA on 23 Aug announced strikes on Monday 9 September Tuesday 10 September and Friday 27 September.

So much going on, what a shame it will be buried under all the strike news, such a coincidence?

Crew on plane told me it was BAs birthday on Sunday. Fellow passenger asked what was happening- response was balloons and stuff!

Surely no-none would have an event involving balloons in 2019 with the current environmental focus?
