Baggage handler strikes at Heathrow, Gatwick and Manchester

Flying with Qatar out of Heathrow Terminal 4 Tuesday 23rd December. Phoned our tour operator and they didn't know anything about it.

They really pick their times right don't they, I bet you most of them will go Christmas shopping instead of standing outside striking, I feel sorry for the people that are going to be stranded.

Reading the article it looks like it is only the following airlines using 'Dnata' that would be affected

Dnata’s main customers include Virgin Atlantic, Emirates, Cathay Pacific, Turkish Airlines and Qantas Airways

Fingers crossed they change their minds before 23rd

Hi

Read another article that included Qatar airways in the list. Our tour operator has just spoken to Qatar airways and they haven't heard anything either so just hoping it's another Daily Fail scaremongering article and it doesn't go ahead!

Re "Christmas shopping instead of standing outside striking"

No more than 6 people are allowed on a picket line.
