Grundy v British Airways Plc - the disadvantaged can be the pool for comparison in equal pay cases - Court of Appeal 23.10.07

Mrs Grundy worked as support cabin crew (SCC) for British Airways. The SCC scheme ended in 1994; thereafter there were full and part-time cabin crew. Mrs Grundy became part-time.
