British Airways Strike Cancels Almost All Flights
The upcoming strike at British Airways has cancelled almost all flights next week.
The strike is by flight deck crew who are members of the British Airline Pilots’ Association (BALPA) are seeking an improved pay deal from BA, above the current offer of an 11.5 per cent rise over three years.
British Airways has cancelled almost all of the 1,600 flights it was due to operate on Monday & Tuesday next week due to the strikes, which will include all 5 daily rotations between Newcastle & London Heathrow on both days.
All 40 flights between London Heathrow and New York, which is BA’s most important and profitable route, have been cancelled too leaving many people potentially with several extra days before they can return home.
The strike will cost British Airways between £75m and £80m in lost revenue, plus extra costs in looking after customers during their delays.
