British Airways has cancelled nearly all of its flights over 9th and 10th September after pilots commenced a strike.
The strikes are due to an ongoing dispute with pilot union BALPA over pay and conditions. British Airways said “Unfortunately, with no detail from BALPA on which pilots would strike, we had no way of predicting how many would come to work or which aircraft they are qualified to fly, so we had no option but to cancel nearly 100 per cent our flights”.
Flights on BA CityFlyer, SUN-AIR and Comair are not affected.
Many travellers have been informed not to go to airports.
All affected travellers have been offered a full refund or the option to re-book to another date of travel or alternative airline.
Affected travellers will be notified of any cancellations. If you are unsure about an upcoming flight please always feel free to contact your designated travel team.
The pilots are threatening another strike on Friday 27th September.
