Airlines Cancel London Flights in Anticipation of Strike
Tuesday, 29 November 2011
Two of the largest airlines in the Middle East, Emirates and Etihad, have announced that they are canceling all flights scheduled to arrive at London's Heathrow Airport on Wednesday, in order to help their passengers avoid lengthy waits due to the pending strike. Wednesday's strike action will be taken by the public sector workers in the UK, including border control and immigration staff, and will result in lengthy delays at Heathrow, says BAA, the company that operates Heathrow.

BAA has been trying to create a contingency plan that will make the experience of passengers as good as possible on Wednesday. As such, they have warned carriers of gridlock and potential delays of up to 12 hours and have requested that all airlines flying into Heathrow on Wednesday only fly at half the full capacity of the aircraft. Deutsche Lufthansa AG has not canceled flights, but have agreed to fly at half capacity. Other major airlines, such as United and British Airlines, have yet to cancel flights for Wednesday.
