What they say

Stephen Archer is a speaker with great charisma. By using illustrations and personal experiences and not being afraid to share his own point of view of the current situation and who is to blame for it, he engages the whole audience, at the same time helping us all to understand the credit crunch a little better.

Is the model broken and is British Airways a symbol of this? The answer is that the model has changed for good but is not broken.

Airlines are having to adapt to a new market steered much more by the low cost carriers whilst also trying to navigate their way through a recession – especially in business travel. This last point is clearly not understood by the unions representing the airline staff who want to impose their own business model on an airline under severe economic pressure.

When unions can own up to the fact that no one has a right to a job and no one has the right to impose terms on its employer, then we may see unions actually helping their members and the member’s employer to become better able to employ staff. The current, self destructive behaviour by a minority in the unions serves very few people.
