Written by Smooth FM on September 9, 2019
British Airways pilots are planning a strike on Monday and Tuesday, walking out for 48 hours in a pay dispute.
The British Airline Pilots’ Association says a further strike day in the long-running dispute is planned for September 27.
Most of British Airway’s 850 scheduled flights per day will be cancelled, with passengers being offered a refund or a later flight.
Starting at midnight on Sunday, the walkout is likely going have knock-on effects lasting for days, British media reported. The Guardian UK newspaper estimated that some 145,000 passengers would be affected.
