British Airways cancels flights ahead of September 27 strike
British Airways customers are set to face further disruption after the airline confirmed it would cancel the vast majority of flights on September 27 because of a planned pilots strike. The move comes as BA and the British Airline Pilots' Association, the union representing the majority of BA's pilots, have failed to restart talks after a 48-hour strike earlier this week. Britain's flagship carrier was forced to cancel almost all of its 1,700 flights over the two days, hitting 195,000 customers. BA refused to specify exactly how many flights would be affected by the 24-hour walkout, saying only it would affect the "Vast majority" but would not be as bad as this week's walkout, when just a handful of flights operated. The decision to cancel flights is likely to escalate the row with pilots, who this week warned again they would consider further strike dates if BA continued to refuse "Meaningful negotiations".
