BA cancels over a third of flights on Saturday

Air passengers faced disruptions on Saturday when British Airways cancelled more than a third of its flights as the cabin crew strike entered second day.

Reports suggest that 93 scheduled flights out of a total of 276 flights were cancelled at Heathrow Airport.

The BA said that it expected to fly 75 per cent of passengers as this weekend’s strike would cause less disruption than last weekend’s strike when cabin crew walked out for three days.

The current strike is due to run from Saturday until Tuesday.

The cabin crew members are walking out to oppose company’s announced changes to pay and working conditions.

Unite union’s Steve Turner has warned other strike action after the Easter unless the management reaches a settlement with the union.
