British Airways pilots kick Willie while he’s down

Interesting days for students of airline labour relations. BALPA is taking the opportunity to kick Willie Walsh while he’s down. The timing of this video of their march at Heathrow a few weeks back is probably coincidental, but the issuance of this open letter to financial institutions is most certainly not.The timing has a thuggish elegance. Issuing this at the height of the T5 meltdown would have looked like sabotage, but kicking Willie Walsh just as he struggles to his knees is straight out of Reservoir Dogs.

Meanwhile it seems that both sides will be in the High Court on 19 May. And that it’s going to be a pretty brutal affair. Some at Pprune think the BA tactic is to bankrupt BALPA.
