BUDGET airline Ryanair is reminding passengers to avoid the British Airways (BA) cabin crew strike this weekend by snapping up a seat on more than 400 routes to and from the UK.
BA has already cancelled many flights as a result of the strike action by members of the trade union Unite this weekend (March 20-22).
Ryanair has launched a rescue fare of �69.99 (one way including taxes and charges) for BA passengers whose travel plans have been disrupted by the strikes. Availability is limited, as most Ryanair flights are already heavily booked on these three days.
Ryanair's Daniel de Carvalho said: "With the Unite union and British Airways once again disrupting thousands of passengers, travellers can ensure that they avoid being caught up in BA's strikes by switching to one of Ryanair's strike free, guaranteed lowest fares flights.

"Indeed, the only way that passengers travelling to/from the UK can avoid being disrupted by BA's strike is to book one of Ryanair's low fares as only we guarantee passengers that they won't be disrupted by any airline staff strikes.
