British Airways has been making some genuine improvements over the last year or so, but I’m really not sure what they were thinking when they decided on this latest trial. According to a cabin crew union memo seen by PaddleYourOwnKanoo, BA is currently trialling not cleaning aircraft between flights on some domestic and European routes.
The memo reads:
“It has been brought to our attention that British Airways have begun a trial whereby there will be no cleaning completed in the cabin during turnarounds…The company has confirmed that this trial is being carried out in response to improving turnaround performance for customers and will focus particularly on reducing delays during times of disruption.”
If BA were hoping that cabin crew would just pick up the slack and clean the cabin themselves during the turnaround, it looks like that won’t be happening. The union memo continues:
“It is absolutely imperative that crew DO NOT do any cleaning of seat pockets, crossing seatbelts etc,”
The trial is believed to last about a week.
What do you think about BA not cleaning the cabin between flights? 😉
