I'm management so service may be diminished today. Coffee or water?

British Airways Unite trade union workers are on strike. For the interim BA is flying 1100 of their 1950 scheduled flights - 60% -- in a brilliant piece of service-good-enough logic devised by Willie Walsh CEO of BA/BYOB.

The remaining 850 flights are serviced by Unite who decided not to come to work in protest of the crummy-service-principal espoused by Willie and - oh yes the important stuff - the pay and conditions dispute.

The whole falderal is supposed to last a few days -- which is 3, and not 2 or 4 as some misguided individuals believe.

The American business and computer programming principal that 80% is good enough has shrewdly been altered by BA to accommodate the fact they could only drum up the amount of planes and non-union employees to service 1100, or 60%, of the flights.

The business plan was implemented when Unite and Willie couldn't agree after hour upon hour of arguing about football rules.

After the 3 days planned strike a breather will be taken and they will be back at it over Easter weekend.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
