About British Airways plc

British Airways plc (LSE: BAY.L) is a leading international airliner with an employee base of about 40,000 people.

In June 09, British Airways has emailed its employees to work unpaid for up to a month. It gave an option to employees to take an unpaid leave for one to four weeks or to work during the period.

In 2008, BA held merger talks with Qantas but was not able to agree a deal.

In July 09, the airliner announced a series of steps to face recession. The steps include reduction of its capacities (from 5% instead of earlier planned 4% during the winter schedule), reducing seats by 3.5% (instead of the 2.5% planned earlier), grounding of some planes, delay taking delivery of Airbus A380 double-decker planes it ordererd, reduce capital expenditure spending as a bid to conserve cash.

British Airways strike

A 3-day strike is propsed in March 2010 by the crew of the airliner after talks between the Unite union and management collapsed. The airliner however said that it will be able to fly 60% of the passengers who have booked tickets for the weekend flights. The strike has been hurting the Labor government that is barely weeks behind for the election.

Merger with Iberia

BA's boss Willie Walsh said he is working hard for a possible merger between BA and Spanish carrier Iberia. The merger would allow the duo to cut costs by eradicating duplication of routes, backroom staff and aircraft. In September 2010, BA indicated that it may buy an Indian airline following its merger with Iberia.

In September 2010, Walsh's declaration has surprised many when he announced that BA has shortlisted 12 airliners as potential targets for BA to acquire or merge with.
