  2. As PIO members may be aware cabin crew employed by British Airways have announced plans to strike on March 20,21,22,27,28,29 and 30. The strikes may not go ahead but any PIO member booked to travel on those dates should read the following information and contact the airline or travel agent to see if their flight is affected. BA cabin crew strike 2010 - Latest information - British Airways Apologies that the formatting of the tables did not carry over correctly,click the link if it is not clear enough for you.Also feel free to send me a PM or email if you have any questions that you feel I may be able to answer.
  3. LONDON - British Airways may train cleaners and baggage handlers as cabin crew in a bid to thwart a strike threat. A new strike ballot of British Airways cabin crew is to be held next week. Around one million passengers could see their Easter travel plans ruined if the Unite union organises a 12-day strike in April. British Airways boss Willie Walsh, in a letter to all BA workers, called last night for volunteers “to back BA by training to work alongside cabin crew who choose not to support a strike, so we are ready to keep our customers flying as much as we can if this strike goes ahead”. The decision by the Unite union to hold a fresh vote in a week’s time on possible strike action came after more than a week of talks with the airline failed to resolve the dispute over staff levels and working conditions. Industrial action planned for Christmas was blocked after a court granted an injunction, declaring it illegal Unite will ballot its 12,000 members which make up 98% of the airline’s cabin crew. A spokeswoman for the union said Unite had gone as far as it could in the talks to meet the airline’s demands but the ball was now in BA’s court. The BA dispute is incredible to watch from afar. To see the British flag carrier being torn apart by by two dogma driven parties is reminiscent of the 1930s. The union may well consider adding cloth caps to their wardrobes whilst the management organises the lockout. Today's news from JAL should be a salutory reminder.
  4. Hi all I know that air pressure on the ground at sea level is x and that walking around on the ground at sea level the oxygen content of the air on a normal day is y. I believe that in a jet at 33K ft or 35Kft the cabin is pressurised to an artifical altitude which is not as high as the plane but is not ground level either. I think I've heard that the innards of the plane are pressurised to about 8,000ft but I am not sure about that figure. That would be like sitting on top of a very high mountain it seems to me so the virtual pressure could be an altitude of less than 8,000ft. The reason I need to find out is because the Medical Officer of the Commonwealth is fond of asking whether Bloggs is fit to make the long flight to Australia bearing in mind the low oxygen content in the plane's cabin. I know that airlines are stingy about bringing in fresh air from outside the plane because the air is very cold and it is very expensive to heat it to an acceptable temperature before circulating it. Heating it costs fuel which costs money. Also the air outside the plane is very "thin" - ie very little oxygen - so it is not the most desirable air to have in the cabin anyway. If possible I want to try to discover what the real deal is with the pressure and oxygen content inside an average passenger plane, please. Prefereably some figures and a description of what they mean. Does anybody either know this or know how to find out, please? Many thanks Gill
