British Airways' boss Willie Walsh has reiterated that cabin crew who participated in last weekend's strike will no longer receive staff travel perks.
Speaking this morning live on the BBC Breakfast programme, the chief executive said union members were fully aware before the ballot was made that perks, which included free and discounted flights, would be withdrawn.
The union has said Walsh must reverse his decision before negotiations can continue, but the Irishman said: " The decision will never be withdrawn. We made it clear before people were balloted what the consequences would be.
"Travel perks are non-contractual. We have never negotiated on travel perks with the union and Tony Woodley (joint-general secretary of the Unite union) knows that."
Walsh said a proposal given to the union before last week's strike started remained on the table.
He said no talks were planned, but that he was ready and available to restart negotiations today in a bid to avert this weekend's disruption.
He claimed 75% of BA customers would fly this weekend as scheduled, while another 18% have been booked on other carriers.
"But that leaves 8% whose holidays have been destroyed because of this action."
