Issue 2193
  • Over three quarters of cabin crew earn less than £20,000 a year (less than the average London wage).
  • Many rely on tax credits or second jobs to survive.
  • Cabin crew wages fell by over 4 percent in real terms between 2001 and 2008.
  • BA cabin crew earn more than some crew at other airlines. It is right to fight to level wages up, not down.
