British Airways offers to restore cabin crew perks in a bid to end strike action.

The 12-month dispute between BA and the Unite union has been a long and gruelling process for BA, one that has cost the airline £150million.

Staff at BA previously received a 90% discount on stand-by tickets but following strike action from crew members, the company revoked the privilege.

It seems now that some BA employees involved with the strike action will have their travel benefits reinstated, but this will not be true for all as BA considers employee loyalty.

BA said that restoring the travel perks would only come into play if Unite agreed to abandon any legal action against the airline.

The Unite union will put the BA offer forward to members with results due in mid-November. If the employees involved agree to the deal, it would end one of the UK’s longest industrial disputes.
