British Airways: Long-serving cabin crew face 20% pay cut
British Airways has told its longest-serving cabin crew they face a 20% cut in basic pay or they will lose their jobs. Under the plan, long-serving cabin crew will need to re-sign under new terms. "One cabin crew member who has worked for the airline since 1989, but did not want to give her name, told the BBC:"We know we make a profit but people are being offered new contracts which won't allow them to pay their mortgages. Currently the airline's Heathrow-based cabin crew are divided into three fleets or teams: the Worldwide fleet for long haul flights, the Eurofleet for short haul and the Mixed fleet. Cabin crew who have spoken to the BBC have pointed out that much of what they earn comes in the form of variable allowances - paid on top of their basic salary - which are due to be replaced under the new scheme.
