Reuters: BA Averts Strike With Last-Minute Union Deal 

British Airways Flight Cancellations Have Started

Even talk of a strike kills tourism as people don’t want to bet their two weeks annual vacation against predicting whether the union and management will be able to work things out. According to the Guardian, all BA flights for Tuesday and Wednesday have now been cancelled.

Let’s hope that flights will resume on Thursday.

    Refresh my memory…wasn’t BA supposed to pick up the slack left by the new Caribbean Airways? There was a time when BA had difficulty that you could always count on BWIA flying into the region from the UK.

    As Barbara Streisand says…”Memories….”

    Just one more headache for the most incompetent Minister of Tourism to contend with but alas he now will have a reason for the poor showing in the tourist arrivals for this winter season it will all come down to the strike by BA, what a lucky person he is and not so lucky for the rest of us who live on this lovely rock called Barbados.
    Talking politics did anyone attend and see the sea of people who attended the meeting last night in Nelson Square or Heroes Square last evening it was a revelation, and all the speakers were excellent.
    Got a lot of time for this young man Mr Sealy he is a solid performer not to mention Mr Kellman, Mr Todd,Mr Estwick nor Mr Thompson they where all to the point.
