British Airways strike threat for December

Unite, the union for BA's cabin crew, has issued notice of a ballot of their members for strike action (BBC). Given the formalities that apply, if a strike does happen it is likely to be close to Christmas. The earliest possible date is 30 November although that is improbable and the latest date for a strike to commence is about 28 December.

Time to start thinking about contingency plans, particularly for travel that is time-constraint (can't easily be delayed) or on routes with few alternatives.

Ah, that's alright. After all, Royal Mail is on strike, so I won't get my tickets to start with, and then with the tube on strike I won't be able to get to the airport anyway.

With all these strikes, London is starting to feel distinctly like France.
