British Airways to cut 400 jobs
4 December 2012
British Airways (BA) has announced it will cut 400 senior cabin crew positions.
The airline said that all redundancies would be voluntary and it has started a 90-day consultation process. The losses will be on both long and short-haul routes and are expected to take effect from next March.
The announcement follows a newspaper report which said that British Airways had too many senior cabin crew members. The cuts will affect crew working exclusively on either its long or short-haul flights, and not people who worked across both.
BA’s sister airline, Iberia, said last month that it will cut 4,500 jobs. The two firms merged in 2011 to form International Airlines Group.
