British Airways is facing the most damaging in its history with nearly 1600 flights at risk of being grounded next week.
Up to 90% of the airline’s 4300 pilots are expected to walk out for the first time, ruining the airline’s schedule. The action comes after union leaders and the airline reached stalemate over a pay deal. The pilot’s latest demand was branded ” cynical ” by the airline. As many as 290,000 passengers due to fly next Monday and Tuesday could be affected. One estimate suggested that only ten of BA’s 300 aircraft could be operating on each of the strike days.
