••• David Cameron has accused Gordon Brown of failing to act over the BA strike because the Unite union is “bankrolling” the Labour party.

The Tory leader hit out at Labour’s “vested interests” after a three-day cabin crew strike began.

BA chief executive Willie Walsh personally apologised to passengers in a video message, saying: “I am deeply sorry. This is a terrible day for BA.”

He said he had received many messages of support from customers, some of whom had urged him to “stand firm” against union pressure over cost-cutting.
BA has warned passengers flights could be cancelled even after the first three-day cabin crew strike ends because of a “knock-on effect” on flight scheduling.

The airline is urging people to check its official website http://www.britishairways.com to find out which services will be operating and what happens to affected customers.

Cabin crew strike
Unite, the trade union that represents the majority of British Airways (BA) cabin crew, has announced its intention to take strike action from 20 to 22 March and 27 to 30 March 2010.
Updated information including some cancellations for flights departing on 23 and 24 March 2010
