British Airways cancels flights on September 27 due to strike

 

British Airways said on Thursday it is canceling some flights scheduled for September 27 when its pilots are due to hold another strike.

“We are now contacting all those affected to offer them a full refund or a rebooking on an alternative date, destination or airline,” British Airways said in an emailed statement, reports Reuters.

It did not say how many flights would be affected.

The airline, owned by International Airlines Group (IAG) , was forced this week to cancel 1,700 flights to and from London’s Heathrow and Gatwick airports during two days of strike action by pilots over pay. Another day of industrial action has been scheduled for Sept. 27.

The pilots’ union, the British Airline Pilots Association (BALPA), wants a pay deal to include profit sharing for BA pilots.

British Airways warned on Wednesday it would take some time for its flight schedule to return to normal after this week’s strikes left aircraft and crew in the wrong place.
