British Airways pilots threaten mega strike in November
"It would bring the airline to its knees"
After the dates of September 10 and 11, on the 27th of the same month, British Airways' pilots are going to plan another strike. They had promised further protest dates if their requests had not been heard (see AVIONEWS).
BALPA (British Airline Pilots' Association) is now planning a ten-day abstention from work in November which would cost to the carrier £ 400 million and, according to the "Sun" it would have threatened: "The interruptions that we have caused are nothing compared to to the mega strike that we are planning and that would put BA on its knees".
According to reports, trade union interruptions are costing the airline around £ 40 million a day and are taking place in the company's 100th year of operations.
Alex Cruz, CEO of British Airways, said he was "sad and disappointed".
