British Airways strike could ruin summer holiday plans

IAG IAG

British Airways passengers could face August disruption after three unions rejected a pay offer and one announced a strike ballot. The British Airline Pilots’ Association (Balpa), Unite and the GMB union have been in joint talks with BA over a pay claim, together with profit-sharing and share benefits, since November 2018. They have rejected BA’s offer as “too little, too late” when set against a backdrop of record profits, saying: “It also fails to address the fundamental principle of fairness by denying employees a reasonable share of the success they have helped produce.”.

British Airways owner to buy 200 Boeing 737 MAX planes worth US$24 billion - CNA

IAG IAG +1 more IAG IAG BA

LE BOURGET, France: US aircraft giant Boeing got a welcome vote of confidence in its beleaguered 737 MAX plane on Tuesday (Jun 18) when International Airlines Group (IAG), owner of British Airways, said it wanted to buy 200 of the planes. "We have every confidence in Boeing and expect that the aircraft will make a successful return to service in the coming months having received approval from the regulators," IAG's chief Willie Walsh said in a statement. Boeing is battling to regain the trust of passengers, pilots and regulators after a 737 operated by Indonesia's Lion Air crashed last October, followed by an Ethiopian Airlines jet in March. "We are very confident that the three layers of protection we are planning with the software update will prevent anything like this happening again," McAllister said. Yet it remains unclear when the 737 MAX will fly again, with Alexandre de Juniac, director general of the International Air Transport Association (IATA), warning that certification might not come before August. Some airlines aren't taking any chances, with American Airlines recently cancelling all its 737 MAX flights through Sep 3.
