British Airways cabin crew have not been showing up for flights to India, amid fear they will catch Covid.
Night flights have been axed in a bid to get crew back on board and the airline’s bosses have had to write a letter to staff begging them to continue to fly.
India is currently ravaged with infections and has claimed more than 270,000 lives amid almost 2.7 million cases.
A letter to frontline staff from executives read: ‘If you do not feel comfortable operating these flights then please complete a form and you will be removed.’
