BA's strike could not have come at a worse time. From 22nd December stretching over the entire festive season to 2nd January 2010, BA strike action will last 12 days during the busiest time of the year.
Though full details of affected routes is yet to be released, travellers may not want to risk booking a BA flight and not being able to get to your destination over Christmas and New Year.
WhichBudget, one of the leading budget airline search engines, reported a 9.13% rise in visitors since British Airways staff announced their strike action.
Savvy travellers are already searching for alternatives. Martino Matijevic, WhichBudget Founder, noted: "In the past 24 hours, since the strike announcement, we have seen an increase of between 5% and 15%, primarily from UK airports. And when we know exactly which routes are effected, we are expecting an even higher spike in searches".
