SCAB + Britsh Airways....

Just the whole word of SCAB sullies the great name of British Airways

BA needs to work with its people real quick for SCAB and Speedbird
SCAB and The Worlds Favourite Airline
SCAB and Concorde

SCAB and BA tarnishes the BRAND OF BRITISH AIRWAYS SO MUCH

Great to be a Brit. If you are a scab, you get the scarlet letter. If I could strike and be sure to have a job I'd walk in a second. Thanx to Ronnie Reagan, the day I walk I'm unemployed.

Tell that to the Reagan era PATCO guys, and most recently the AMFA guys from NWA. The railway labor act calls for a 30 day cooling off period before any job action... that translates into a 30 hiring phase

These other airlines that share flight numbers and airline codes to Britain with British Airways also are subject.
REMEMBER IT TAKES JUST ONE FLIGHT ATTENDANT SHORT OF MINIMUM CREW TO CALL IN SICK AT AN OUT STATION. SUPPORT YOUR PROFESSION
