BA’s Gulf routes impacted by strikes

Guest Writer

British Airways has cancelled some of its Gulf services this week as a result of cabin crew strike action.”We have been forced to cancel some flights on the Doha-Bahrain-London Heathrow route as well as some Jeddah and Dubai services to London during the first wave of strikes. However, we are looking to reinstate flights where possible,” a BA spokesperson told TDME.”We have also secured seats on more than 50 other airlines and are doing all we can to get customers to reach their destination. Refunds are also available for customers whose flights have been cancelled.”The spokesperson also stressed that schedules remained “very fluid at this time” and that the airline expected to reinstate some flights as “more cabin crew continue to support the efforts to keep BA customers flying”.The spokesperson added: “We have been proactively contacting customers whose flights have been affected, and they have either been rebooked for future dates, rerouted, booked on other airlines or refunded. Customers can rebook their flights up to 355 days into the future at no additional cost, subject to availability. “The numbers of cabin crew reporting at Heathrow are currently at the levels we need to operate our published schedule. “We will fly more than 60,000 booked customers around the world every day between 24 May and 28 May, despite these five days being targeted for strikes by Unite.”
