British Airways flights grounded by a strike

Another United Kingdom airline is having troubles. British Airways' European and domestic flights were halted Tuesday by striking ground staff at Heathrow Airport. They rejected the airline's cost-cutting plan to pare its staff from 52 ,000 to 43,000. The state-owned carrier lost $260 million last year and planned to run a limited service using management and staff volunteers to handle baggage.
