    Lucy and others v British Airways plc EAT/0033/08 (0 other reports)

jurisdiction | deductions from wages | flying allowances

The Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) has held that an employment tribunal did not have jurisdiction to hear claims against British Airways for non-payment of flying allowances to cabin crew who had not been able to fly because of an airport closure.

Cabin crew at British Airways were entitled to receive "flying allowances" that included items such as meal allowances and payments for working long days.
