Willie Walsh faces crew backlash at AGM

Chief executive of British Airways, Willie Walsh, faced heckling from the cabin crew at the annual meeting of the BA this morning as he stated that the airline faced down the threat of strikes that have occurred in a series.
Unite trade union members interrupted Walsh with cries of ‘empty aircraft’ and ‘give us numbers’ as the BA boss stated that the airline had made it successfully through the strike series of crew walkouts in March, May, and June.
Walsh also faced a ten minute question and answer session from a flight attendant that accused the airline of failing to discipline cabin crew that made fun of customers on Facebook and ‘gagging’ staff.
As Walsh continued to speak about the response of the airway to the strikes about two dozen flight attendants attempted to shout him down. While saying that the airline had flown one hundred percent of services from Gatwick and most of the flights out of Heathrow Walsh was again interrupted by shouts of ‘no’ and ‘give us numbers.’
Walsh stated that British Airways was not disputing with its staff, but that it was in dispute with the Unite trade union which also caused cabin crew members to start laughing.
Sid Thatcher, a retired BA staff member, stated that the cabin crew strikes were not forgivable during his address and was also drowned out by crew members in the audience.
Shareholder David Millar spent some time meeting with Unite members prior to the meeting and was worried that customers were caught in the middle of the debate.
