The British Airways pilot strike for 27 September has been cancelled the British Airline Pilots Association (Balpa) confirmed on Wednesday.
Balpa general secretary Brian Strutton said, “Someone has to take the initiative to sort out this dispute and with no sign of that from BA the pilots have decided to take the responsible course.
“In a genuine attempt at establishing a time out for common sense to prevail, we have lifted the threat of the strike on the 27 September.
“BA passengers rightly expect BA and its pilots to resolve their issues without disruption and now is the time for cool heads and pragmatism to be brought to bear.
“I hope BA and its owner IAG show as much responsibility as the pilots.
Balpa said that “should BA refuse meaningful new negotiations, Balpa retains the right to announce further strike dates.”
The pilots union warned that they still retain the right to announce further strikes.
