BA Pilot Strike - What does Balpa want?

BA says its offering 11.5% increase over three years. Seems fair/generous to me. A guaranteed salary increase of that much over three years is far from the norm for most of the public.

But what...

What if the original ticket was booked with a TA, can you call BA and upgrade with GUF1/2 if a revenue inventory is available (as opposed to using a joker)?

OSL back-to-back

Has anyone done LHR/OSL BA 768 (arr 2050h) then OSL/LHR BA 769 (dep 2130h) back-to-back on the same day?

I presume BA operates the same aircraft for these flights.

Is this doable? Any tips?
