BA duty free comes back

By Administrator |

Suppliers to British Airways will heave a huge sigh of relief today as inflight duty free services are restored to British Airways' flights.

BA's fleet has been devoid of duty free supplies since the Gate Gourmet strike on August 10. This is because the catering company normally delivers the duty free carts to BA aircraft after taking delivery of them from the Wincanton warehouse operation which BA uses. Since Wincanton obviously has had no access to the airport aprons, it has been unable to deliver the goods. The Business estimates that BA has lost total inflight sales of around ?0.5m ($0.9m) during the period.
