Edinburgh, United Kingdom (PressExposure) December 15, 2009 -- Following the news of BA strike action, which will last 12 days, from 22nd December 2009 to 2nd January 2010, Skyscanner is helping worried passengers find alternative cheap flights [http://www.skyscanner.net].
The strike will be hitting Christmas and New Year travellers hard, coming at one of the busiest times of year for travel and disrupting plans for an estimated one million passengers, especially those taking flights to New York for the festive season.
At the time of writing, BA had not yet released details of the flights that would be affected by the strike, but some passengers are already booking alternatives, not wanting to risk the chance of being unable to reach their families at Christmas.
âWeâve already seen an 11% rise in user traffic to Skyscanner since BAâs announcement of strike action. Right now, it looks like everyone is waiting for more information; no one wants to buy another flight unless theyâre sure they have to.
âBut there will be big search spikes once BA release details of which flights will be affected so itâs worth checking out the alternatives now in case your flight is affectedâ said Sam Baldwin, Skyscanner travel expert.
