British Airways CEO Calls Strike a 'Failure'

June 7, 2010 By: Jena Tesse Fox

British AirwaysAccording to The Guardian, British Airways' CEO Willie Walsh has called the latest day of strike action by cabin crew "a failure" due to the number of passengers who were able to fly despite trade union Unite's plan to ground all planes.

"Unite have failed to ground British Airways, and we are continuing to fly and we are continuing to work," Walsh said at the annual general meeting of the International Air Transport Association (IATA) in Berlin. "Yesterday we flew over 72,000 customers on a day of strike by Unite and, as I say, they have failed."

Walsh refused to comment on the state of negotiations between BA and Unite, saying he had "given a commitment not to speak publicly about the discussions that have taken place, and I intend to honour that."
