Do you have plans to fly British Airways today or tomorrow? Well, I got bad news for you.
British Airways pilots have begun a two-day strike in an ongoing dispute over pay and conditions.
According to the airline, almost all flights from 09 and 10 September have been cancelled. Passengers who have booked a flight for these dates are advised not to go to the airport and make an online rebooking or refund instead.
The reason for the temporary grounding is a 48-hour strike by the pilots. According to British Airways, the extent of the strike was not foreseeable, as almost no information was shared by the pilots’ union BALPA.
You can already see the consequences on FR24: All the planes you see here are BA CityFlyer, Sun-Air as well as long haul flights that departed before the strike began. The rest of the fleet remains grounded.
