The first round of strike action by British Airways cabin crew came to an end today. Many pickets pointed out that this was the most important of the three days of strike action. Whereas the previous two days action over the weekend had mostly affected leisure travellers, Monday’s strike would hit business travellers, one of BA’s most lucrative markets. Not to mention the knock on effects to the national and indeed international economy as one of the world’s largest airlines was largely put out of action at the beginning of a working week.
