Good one this. Lots of different channels for the Daily Mail to direct their hate at here!Happy Easter: BA union militants wreck getaway plans for thousands of families by targeting strikes at holidays
Millions of British Airways passengers are facing Easter holiday chaos after militant union leaders announced a 'cynical' series of crippling strikes.
Gordon Brown - who failed to condemn the walkouts - was under growing pressure over his links to the unions that bankroll the Labour Party.
Rival firms were also accused of profiteering as they hiked prices on the back of the strike announcement... [Heathrow to New York] tickets were around £339 return but have increased to as much as £550.
Anyone who dares to tread on the toes of the Mail's beloved 'families':
The strikes appear deliberately timed to cause maximum misery for families, and chief executive Willie Walsh accused the union of trying to 'destroy' his airline.
Travel firms point out the action will hit the start and finish of the Easter holidays, principally the weekend before Easter, when many start their breaks, and an earlier weekend when tens of thousands have booked cheaper flights...
Further strikes are planned from April 14 if the dispute over pay cuts and changes to crewing levels remains unresolved.
They would affect up to five days of school holidays in many areas of Britain, threatening to leave families stranded away from home.
I am actually quite pleased after that bit. While millions of families will rot away in places like Harrogate, Reading, Macclesfield and Guildford because they cannot get away for their beloved Easter break, I, and many other single people, will be able to travel unimpeded anywhere around the globe using Star Trek style transporter technology.
