BA say more crews report for work at Heathrow

British Airways has claimed enough cabin crews have reported for work at Heathrow to enable more long-haul flights to operate from Terminal 5.

"We have added additional flights into our schedule at both Heathrow and Gatwick and customers can now book on to these flights," the company said.

The Unite union has maintained aircraft are stacking up at the airport as a result of its industrial action.

It said BA was running out of stands at Terminal 5.

Striking cabin crew gathered at a football ground close to Heathrow before taking their turn on picket lines which were mounted again at a number of entrances to the airport.

All flights to and from London City Airport are expected to fly as scheduled, BA said.
