British Airways applies to use Qatar planes, staff during cabin crew strike

Recommended Posts

British Airways has applied to use Qatar Airways planes and crew to help the airline to fly all passengers to their destinations during planned strikes by some of its cabin staff next month.

British Airways' mixed fleet cabin crew - those who work on both long and short-haul flights - are set to go on strike for two weeks from July 1 over sanctions on union members involved in previous industrial action in a long-running dispute about pay.

A document dated June 21 showed that the airline had applied to Britain's Civil Aviation Authority to use nine Qatar registered Airbus A320 or A321s between July 1 and July 16.

"The application has been made on the grounds that the lease is justified on the basis of exceptional needs ... to enable British Airways to continue passenger operations in light of planned operational disruption by its mixed fleet cabin crew," a CAA document said.
