Due to Global Aviation Recession British Airways is cutting 400 Jobs among Cabin Crew and 600 from Others.




British Airways is entering talks with a union on plans to cut 400 jobs among cabin crew.

The airline, which is owned by International Airlines Group (IAG) and operates alongside Spanish carrier Iberia, said it was beginning a 90-day consultation with Unite on the possibility of making voluntary redundancy available.

BA stressed there would be no compulsory job losses.

Those being offered the redundancy package would be senior cabin crew employees, BA said, such as pursers and cabin service directors who work exclusively on long-haul and exclusively on short-haul services.

BA, which suffered a damaging cabin crew dispute over jobs, pay and working conditions that ended last year, now has around 14,000 cabin crew in total.

That strike was resolved after the creation of IAG, which is led by BA's former chief executive Willie Walsh.

His departure to IAG was seen as crucial to the resolution of the dispute amid a bitter war of words with union bosses.

IAG is currently locked in a row with Iberia staff over plans to shed workers at the Spanish loss-maker.
