The latest in a series of strikes by British Airways cabin crew is set to last through August 15.
Cabin crew represented by the Mixed Crew Unite union have been taking part in a series of strikes at British Airways since July 1 as part of a long-running dispute over pay. Crew had held a 16-day strike that started July 1, followed by another 14-day strike that began July 19.
According to The Sun, the latest strike is set to begin today, August 1, immediately after the last strike ended, and will last through August 1.
British Airways has said that it plans to continue operating all of its short-haul flights to and from Heathrow, with Qatar Airways, which owns part of British Airways parent company IAG, flying a small number of those services. Travelers can see if their flight is being operated by Qatar Airways using the Manage My Booking section on the British Airways website.
All flights to and from London Gatwick, London City and Stansted will operate as normal, British Airways said, as well as the airline’s recently launched weekend-only Mediterranean services to and from Birmingham, Bristol and Manchester.
The airline has asked travelers to ensure that their email and phone contact information is up to date in the Manage My Booking section so that the airline can continue to provide updates on their flights.
