UPDATE – STRIKE CALLED OFF
On Monday 16th August, the Unite union will meet to plane strike dates.
The union must give a weeks notice prior to strikes, meaning 23rd August is the first possible strike date.
The Bank holiday weekend 28,29,30th August is one potential date range the union may pick to try and increase disrupton.
The last BAA strike, was back in early 2008. Back then, strikes could affect Gatwick, but since BAA sold Gatwick, this airport will remain open for future strikes.
Flights from Gatwick are expected to be fully booked as London’s passengers try to avoid getting caught in the striked at Heathrow.
