Homework
Not long ago, BA was flying high and making millions. But the turbulent global economy has seen its profits plunge. And even the last three months gearing up the lucrative holiday season have failed to lift up the down with trend.
“ Unless this airline can very, very quickly change and step to a market which may never be the same again, never be as strong as it was in 2006 and 5, then I feel British Airway problems will continue.”
British Airway is facing a number of difficulities. Demount for air travel is dropping during the recession and the airline has been hit hard by a falling premium passengers with first class and business booking down 15%. BA’s vast work force of 40.000 has also added to the overheads, wages alone cost warping 2.2 billion pounds. And rising fuel costs remain a problem is the price oil is record high last year.
In response, BA is taking action, scraping meals on short flights, cutting thousands of jobs and more controversially asking staff to work for free this month. BA boss * stated relatively few follow his example. He also wants to renegotiate every employee’s contract, something that could well cause strikes. It’s a dark day for*. BA desperately needs to settle it to stop this dispute and streamline its operations if it’s to limit the damage in the month ahead.
