British Airways cancels flights ahead of September 27 strike

London, 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.

BA said it would be emailing affected customers on Thursday afternoon and that resources at call centres had been tripled to help deal with passengers looking to rebook.

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.
