GATE GOURMET issued a statement on Sunday (25 September) that does not look promising. Eric Born, managing director UK & Ireland, is outspoken. ”We are disappointed at the tone and content of the resolution proposed by the TGWU given the progress we have been making with them in talks with the assistance of the TUC. The resolution is inaccurate at best and at worst it purports to recount events which in reality simply did not occur”. An agreement is vital if Gate Gourmet is to secure a two-year extension to its contract to supply BA's in-flight catering. The current arrangement ends in 2008. BA say that service has returned to normal on its longer haul flights and furthest European destinations. No date has been announced for full refreshments on the entire network.
