British Airways pilots to go on two-day strike

British Airways pilots to go on two-day strike

London: Pilots of British Airways will go on a two-day strike from Sunday midnight in their ongoing dispute over pay and other terms.

According to the airline, passengers have been told not to go to the airports and to check its website for further information.

The British Airways Pilots Association (BALPA) said the strike is a "last resort", because of "enormous frustration" with the airline's management.

In July, the airline pilots rejected a pay rise of 11.5 per cent over three years.

The BALPA says its members have taken a "low" pay rise and made sacrifices during tough times and now that the British Airways' financial performance had improved — its parent company International Airlines Group (IAG) reported 9 per cent rise in profits last year — they should get a greater share of the

profits.
