BA flights to Dubai remain suspended

altMarch 22-British Airways (BA) cabin crew’s three-day strike kicked off yesterday after talks regarding a dispute over pay and conditions collapsed, thus causing great inconvenience to passengers at the Dubai International Airport. BA has cancelled flight BA105 between London's Heathrow airport and Dubai International Airport for the duration of the strikes. Also, BA's flight BA104 between Dubai and Heathrow tomorrow, might also be cancelled due to the strike actions.
Meanwhile, the cancelled flights were appearing on Dubai Airport’s website as having arrived on time. This, said a BA spokesperson, was because the airline was flying freighters on the affected routes instead of passenger airlines.
More than 1,000 flights are due to be cancelled over the next three days and a potentially more disruptive second walk-out is possible for four days from March 27 right before the Easter holidays. "We are very disappointed that, despite lengthy negotiations, Unite has rejected the chance of a settlement and resolved that its strikes should go ahead," British Airways said.
