BA cabin crew to begin new strike today

Cabin crews of Britain's largest air carrier, British Airways (BA), will go on another five-day strike on Saturday.

Tensions between BA and the Unite trade union began in 2009, when the company said it would reduce cabin crew for long-haul flights from 15 to 14, making 1,000 full-time cabin crew staff redundant.

The airways also announced salary growth would be frozen through 2010.

The trade union has since held a number of walkouts, the latest during May 30-June 3.

The company management said it regretted that the strike will continue through June 9 and vowed to do everything possible to minimise damages inflicted on passengers.
