Airline Strike Updates

It looks as if Hawaiian Airlines has averted a strike. After nearly three years of negotiations, the airline has reached a tentative contract with its pilots union, which had authorized a strike in a preliminary vote, the Honolulu Star-Bulletin reports.

Not so much with British Airways. The airline won a court injunction to stop a strike by cabin crew over the Christmas and New Year’s holidays. But that victory was based on a technicality. The union is expected to vote again and authorize a strike for January, the Associated Press reports.

In fact, transportation in Britain has been a bit janky of late. More than 2,000 people were stranded aboard trains that were stuck in the Channel Tunnel for up to six hours in freezing conditions on Friday, the Daily Mail reports. And the budget airline Flyglobespan suddenly collapsed earlier in the week, stranding thousands of passengers, as the BBC reports.
