CITY VIEWS: DO YOU THINK BAA WAS RIGHT TO OFFER UNITE WORKERS A BETTER PAY DEAL TO AVOID STRIKE ACTION?

JONATHAN RUMBALL | ROYAL LONDON

"It’s not really right, everybody else is having to struggle, ask how many other people are getting pay rises this year? It’s typical union stuff, putting a gun to BAA’s head. They had them over a barrel."

GREG BEALER | CORNHILL CAPITAL

"If it stops strike action then maybe it was right. If it would cost them more money to have the airports closed than to increase the pay offer then maybe they made the right decision."

JONATHAN TYLER | EQUUS IFM

"I'm flying to New York during the Bank Holiday weekend so personally I'm quite happy actually. I wouldn’t be surprised if there hasn’t been some political pressure on BAA to avert strike action."
