British Airways’ pilots union is mulling more strikes as talks turn hostile.
The warning comes ahead of pilot strikes on Monday and Tuesday, with about 1,600 flights at risk of being grounded, affecting up to 280,000 customers.
“We’ll take stock after the strike action next week. We hope to see BA at the negotiating table but if it doesn’t happen then we’ll have to consider next steps, and as part of that further strikes are not ruled out,” said Brian Strutton of Balpa. He said BA had “shut down” all dialogue with the union, calling it “pretty dismal”.
