Disruption continues for BA passengers







Disruption will continue today for thousands of British Airways passengers as the airline works to get its aircraft and crew back in the right place following a 48-hour pilots strike.

Nearly half of its fleet of over 300 aircraft and more than 700 pilots will start the day in the wrong place after the two-day walk-out by BALPA members.

In addition, more than 4,000 cabin crew have had their rosters disrupted and, and in many cases, won't be able to work again for several days due to legal rest requirements.

What BA is saying
"We are very sorry for the disruption BALPA's industrial action has caused our customers. We are working hard to get back to normal and to get our customers to their destinations.

"The nature of our highly complex, global operation means that it will take some time to get back to a completely normal flight schedule however, we plan to fly more than 90% of our flights today."

"We are offering all affected customers full refunds or the option to re-book to another date of travel or an alternative airline."

What BALPA is saying
BALPA is urging BA back to the negotiating table with some 'meaningful proposals' to try to avert the next scheduled strike on September 27.


General secretary Brian Strutton said: "Surely any reasonable employer would listen to such a clear message, stop threatening and bullying, and start working towards finding a solution."
