Swissport Strike called off. BA strike should cause no cancellations

The latest update in the Christmas strikes at Heathrow is that the baggage workers will no longer strike and should be accepting a pay deal.

While the British Airways cabin crew strike is still scheduled, the airline is suggesting that flight will not be affected. This may be because the striking fleet only represent a small portion of Heathrow’s cabin crew. In past cabin crew strikes BA dealt with the lack of crew by drafting in other staff members, including pilots, to help operate flights.
