British Airways: July Passenger Capacity Down 2.7%

LONDON (Dow Jones)--British Airways PLC (BAY.LN) said Wednesday in July passenger capacity, measured in available seat kilometres, was 2.7% below July 2008.

MAIN FACTS:

-Traffic, measured in revenue passenger kilometres, rose by 1%.

-This resulted in a passenger load factor increase of 3.1 points versus last year, to 84.6%.

-Traffic comprised an 11% decrease in premium traffic and a 3.5% increase in non-premium traffic.

-Cargo, measured in cargo tonne kilometres, fell by 6.8%.

-Market conditions remain as previously described.

-Underlying volumes and seat factors stabilised during first quarter and are expected to improve in peak summer months.

-Yields will be under pressure from the year on year impact of lower fuel surcharges, exchange movements and mix.

-Yield uncertainty continues to make revenue forecasting difficult.

-Based on current fuel prices and exchange rates the full year fuel bill is expected to be between GBP450 million and GBP500 million lower than last year.

-The airline announced that it is planning to raise GBP680 million of liquidity through a GBP350 million convertible bond issue and by gaining access to bank facilities which are currently used to provide guarantees to its pension funds.

-This will increase liquidity to GBP2 billion.

-Pilots represented by the British Airline Pilots' Association or BALPA voted 94% in favour of a package of measures that will save the company GBP26 million per annum.

-British Airways is moving its flights to Sydney, Singapore and Bangkok from Heathrow Terminal 4 to Terminal 3 on Oct. 29, with Qantas moving into Terminal 3 on the same day.

-This will help to ensure smoother connections for customers from Oneworld Alliance partners who will all be based in Terminal 3 from that date.

-Has launched "Face to Face", a long term campaign to boost economic growth in U.S. by offering 1000 American business people opportunity to travel overseas to conduct face-to-face meetings with business partners.

-This is U.S. version of "Backing Britain" campaign launched earlier this year.

British Airways to Put Ads on Boarding Passes

By KAVERI NITHTHYANANTHAN
LONDON -- British Airways PLC on Friday became the first major European scheduled airline to seek advertisers for its boarding passes, as it seeks new revenue to help reverse losses.

The airline, which posted a £106 million ($175.7 million) net loss for the three months ended June 30, said it is now actively touting for advertisers to use space on its boarding cards and on its Web site.

Airlines around the world have seen revenues plummet as the economic downturn and credit crunch have slashed demand for air travel. BA has been hit particularly hard because its main profit driver is first- and business-class traffic across the Atlantic. Business travel has dropped sharply as companies cut costs.

To cope with the reduced demand, the airline has been slashing expenses by grounding planes, cutting jobs and asking staff to take pay and bonus holidays.

The ability to advertise on boarding passes will be available from Oct. 1. Luxury auto maker Jaguar was the first company to advertise on BA's Web site -- the first advertisement since the site's launch in the mid-1990s. More than 500,000 people a day visit ba.com, according to the airline.

British Airways new routes to the Caribbean

British Airways (BA) has announced two new twice weekly routes heading to the Caribbean. The first will fly non-stop to Montego Bay in Jamaica and the second to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic.

This is the next step of BA increasing their services to the area. They have recently revealed that they will be extending some other services to the region. Flights from Gatwick Airport to St. Lucia and Trinidad will both increase from three to five times per week while the popular Dominican Republic route will rise from nine to ten flights per week.

“The Caribbean tends to be a popular destination with our leisure customers seeking a relaxing winter break. Customers will benefit from convenient air connections as well as a range of competitive holiday packages which are also available on ba.com. From October, we will fly 45 times a week to the Caribbean and be servicing 13 destinations in the region, more than any other UK airline,” said a BA spokesperson.

The new Caribbean routes follow BA’s statement recently that they will introduce a non-stop daily flight to Las Vegas and travel to the Maldives and Sharm el Sheikh in Egypt three times a week.

British Airways extends loyalty scheme to passengers on cheapest fares

By Alastair Jamieson
Published: 9:00PM BST 22 Aug 2009


The airline is responding to the slump in business travel during the recession by offering elite membership of its Executive Club even to those buying discounted economy tickets.

Previously, only passengers on expensive fares could earn Tier Points needed for Gold or Silver membership which opens the doors to world-class facilities, including its £60 million 'Galleries' lounges at Heathrow's Terminal 5 featuring champagne bars and free fine dining.

The move is designed to prevent it losing Gold and Silver cardholders – who count among the airline's best customers – many of whom are travelling less often or on cheaper tickets as employers cut travel costs during the credit crunch.

The bid to retain customer loyalty through the recession follows a similar move by supermarket Tesco which last week doubled the number of points awarded to shoppers through its Clubcard scheme.

A BA spokeswoman told the Sunday Telegraph the changes, already communicated to customers by email and to be formally unveiled shortly, are "in response to customer feedback".

Last month the airline announced passenger numbers fell 3.8 per cent in the first quarter of this year, primarily because of a drop in demand for first and business class travel.

Until now, only first, business or expensive flexible economy tickets counted towards Silver membership which gives access to premium check-in and lounge facilities at the airport.

The hurdle meant some frequent fliers opted for loyalty schemes operated by rival carriers such as Bmi or Air France.

Tom Otley, editor-in-chief of Business Traveller magazine, said there was little risk of VIP lounges becoming crowded with economy passengers.

He said: "You would still need an awful lot of Tier Points to get Silver or Gold membership just by flying in economy so we're talking about very frequent fliers and quite a lot of spending.

"Maybe BA thinks the recession will mean fewer passengers in its business lounges and this is a way of making sure such expensive facilities are actually used."

An Executive Club member living in the UK would need to take 50 short-haul flights a year to qualify for Silver membership only on the very cheapest fares, such as £39 for a one-way domestic flight including all taxes. More expensive fares earn a greater number of Tier Points.

Well under half of the scheme's 1.7 million members living in the UK attain Gold or Silver status. Most are Blue level members, who can earn frequent flier miles towards free tickets but otherwise have no benefits.

The BA spokeswoman said: "The change will be of particular use to customers who fly on a mixture of fares but would not otherwise have enough Tier Points to qualify for Silver or Gold membership."

BA merger with Iberia agreed

BA merger with Iberia agreed
13 November 2009

• BA and Iberia in preliminary agreement on £3.96bn merger
• BA's Willie Walsh expected to head merged group

British Airways tonight announced a £3.96bn merger with Spanish rival Iberia, creating an airline with 61.5 million passengers flying to 205 destinations worldwide.

Willie Walsh, BA chief executive and proposed boss of the new company, said the BA and Iberia brands would be retained but the combined ownership would allow both companies to thrive in the face of unprecedented financial pressure on the industry. "BA is part of what I believe will be a leading airline in a a European context, but also looking to be one of the leading airlines in a world context," he said.

The companies' boards met today to approve a memorandum of understanding that will merge both airlines under a company, TopCo, whose ownership will be split 56%-44% in BA's favour. The business will be listed and headquartered in London, with Iberia's chairman, Antonio Vazquez, heading the board. BA expects to complete the deal late next year.

The combined airline will, in terms of sheer scale, appeal to investors keen to see both carriers stave off the effects of a deep recession and increased competition from no-frills operators. BA and Iberia carry 61.5 million passengers a year between them, with 419 aircraft, revenues of around €15bn (£13.4bn) and a workforce of 60,282 people, although cost savings will be one of the main drivers of a deal and the employee count will be expected to fall.

BA shares had risen 8.25% to 216.5p amid hopes that the long-running merger talks, which have been held up by debates over valuations and BA's estimated £3bn pension deficit, were close to a successful conclusion. BA and Iberia confirmed merger talks in July last year, two months after a joint takeover bid for Iberia by BA and private equity firm TPG collapsed. Walsh confirmed tonight that BA's pension fund would be, in effect, ring-fenced with the BA operating company liable for any increased payments.

The merger discussions became strained last December when BA announced merger talks with Australia's Qantas, prompting expressions of surprise from Iberia. The Qantas talks ended before Christmas, prompting BA to concentrate on Iberia and a looser tie-up with American Airlines, which would see BA, AA and Iberia colluding over fares and scheduling.

The Spanish and British national carriers have been forced into exploring a merger by cut-throat competition from low-budget carriers on their short-haul routes and a severe recession that has pushed both airlines into heavy losses. Last week BA posted a record first-half loss of £292m, during its traditionally profitable trading period, while Iberia recorded a net €72.8m (£65m) loss in the three months to the end of June this year. Their global rivals are faring just as badly, with the International Air Transport Association predicting an industry loss of $11bn (£6.6bn) this year.

Both airlines are proposing restructuring plans as a consequence. BA faces the threat of strikes by cabin crew over new working practices including the removal of one air steward on long-haul flights and the proposal of a two-year pay freeze. Iberia has made the most radical proposal, to replace its domestic and European programme with a new and as-yet unnamed airline.

BA-Iberia ‘like two drunks trying to prop each other up’
14 November 2009

Ryanair described the planned British Airways-Iberia merger as being like “two drunks trying to prop each other up”.

A spokesman for the Irish budget carrier said: “Flag carrier airlines throughout Europe are raising the white flag because they can’t compete with Ryanair’s rapid growth, low fares and no fuel surcharge guarantee.

“Consolidation is the only option for these high fares airlines as more and more passengers switch to Ryanair’s low fares.

“The merger of BA and Iberia is like two drunks trying to prop each other up; both have reported large losses, both are facing a winter of industrial action and both charge high fares and fuel surcharges as their passengers switch to Ryanair’s low fare services in the UK and Spain.

“Since consolidation of Europe’s high fares airlines has never led to lower fares, this merger will be great for Ryanair’s growth and we look forward to welcoming many more millions of BA’s and Iberia’s passengers as they switch to Ryanair’s low fares flights.”

The BA-Iberia merger means there will eventually be just four large airlines in Europe, according to Ryanair.

The low fares giant believes it will be there along with BA/Iberia, Air France/KLM and Lufthansa.

The combined BA/Iberia will carry approximately 60 million passengers a year with traffic declining by 4%/10% currently.

Ryanair will still be bigger carrying more than 66 million passengers this year as it grows by 15%.

“This merger is the latest in a long line of European high fares airlines merging because they can’t compete with Ryanair’s lowest fares and no fuel surcharge flights,” the Dublin-based carrier said.

In recent years Lufthansa has taken control of Swiss, Austrian, SN Brussels and BMI while Air France has bought KLM and Alitalia.

“Ryanair believes that all of these mergers will lead to higher fares and even more fuel surcharges from these flag carriers.

“Today’s announcement bears out Ryanair’s forecast that there will be just four large EU airlines – and of these four only Ryanair is committed to low fares and no fuel surcharges.”

I think it was better to merge BA with KLM and Air France with Iberia. Only because they share same culture on doing bussines.

BA cabin crew strike ballot starts

BA cabin crew strike ballot starts
16 November 2009

Ballot papers have been issued to more than 12,000 British Airways cabin crew the day the carrier imposes cost cutting changes to working practices from today (Monday).

The ballot for industrial action will close on December 14 the same day as the next mass meeting of the cabin crew is planned.

If crew vote in support then strike action could start from December 21 and hit the airline over the busy peak Christmas travel period.

A High Court hearing has been set to consider the union Unite’s case further on February 1.

Unite claims that BA’s changes will place crew under “additional stress” during flights, with fewer staff required to absorb the work of colleagues who have been removed.

This will have a negative impact on health and safety, and that the service crew can provide to passengers will suffer, the union claims.

Unite has lodged a collective letter of objection on behalf of its cabin crew members with BA.

The letter makes it clear that Unite’s members, making up more than 12,000 of the entire 14,000 crew workforce, do not accept the imposed changes.

A firm of leading employment solicitors has been asked to establish an e-helpline to allow crew to feedback on the impact on both working practices and customer service.

Brian Boyd, Unite national officer for aviation, said: “The way to deliver change is through negotiation, not imposition. Of course the cabin crew are angry; they care passionately about this business but feel they are not being listened to on serious matters of service delivery.

“This business is all about its customers and the crew do not want them to suffer as a result of these changes.

“We ask BA to signal that it is willing to abandon its plans to impose change and work with us on a way forward, one which delivers for passengers, shareholders and the workforce. Then we could begin to tackle the roots of this damaging dispute and find a way forward.”

BA Staff Back 12 Days Of Christmas Strikes
14 December 2009

British Airways cabin crew have voted nine to one in favour of holding 12 days of strikes over the Christmas and New Year holiday.

Up to two million passengers could be affected by the walkout from December 22nd to January 2nd, which is one of the busiest periods of the year for the airline.

Unite union members voted 92.5% in favour of the planned industrial action following a long-running row over changes to working practices, including a pay freeze and job cuts.

There will now be urgent talks between the union and BA in an attempt to prevent the strikes, which will cost the airline tens of millions of pounds every day.

"We do not take the decision to strike lightly, especially during the financial strife that the company finds itself in," Unite said in a statement.

The union's assistant general secretary Len McCluskey told Sky News the workers who had voted were not "mindless militants who want to bring the company down".

"The last thing they want to do is damage the firm," he said.

Meanwhile, the British Airlines Stewards and Stewardesses Association added that it was "deeply saddened" to have to cause inconvenience, but said it was the only choice left for workers.

On Friday the threat of action grew after BA's chief executive Willie Walsh and leaders of Unite failed to reach an agreement at last-ditch talks.

BA said Mr Walsh repeated the airline's commitment to consider new ideas about future recruitment of new crew.

"Our package is very fair and reasonable, providing opportunities for part-time working and pay rises of between 2% and 7% for 75% of crew," said a spokesman.

BA recorded a pre-tax loss of £401m last year and is reportedly losing £1.6m a day following a huge downturn in the industry.

Head of in-flight customer experience Bill Francis said the company could not wait any longer to implement changes because of the financial "crisis" it faced.

The airline has decided to cut cabin crew numbers and employ new crew on different contracts, which Unite says involves worse pay and conditions.

Hours before the ballot result was revealed, BA announced that the deficits in its two pension schemes had grown from £2.1 billion in 2006 to £3.7 billion, an increase of 76%.

The airline in a statement: "The airline and trustees will now work together to develop a recovery plan, a process which will involve the company consulting with employees and their trade unions.

Commenting on the cabin crew ballot outcome, Bob Atkinson, from travelsupermarket.com said: "This is a double disaster for BA.

"Its customers are now going to be significantly affected and the airline will take a financial hit from the action.

"It's an incredibly sad day for the BA brand.

"It's 12 years since BA staff members have taken direct action and, while they may believe they have a strong case in their disagreement with BA management, the real losers here are the everyday leisure and business customers who will have their Christmas and new year plans disrupted."
