The British Pilots Association, BALPA, has announced strike action on 9th, 10th and 27th September 2019.
British Airways has committed to ensuring minimum disruption to passengers but some bookings may be subject to a schedule change or refund. Alternate flight options are being considered by BA and include wet-leasing aircraft and crew from other airlines and/or using larger aircraft on routes where possible.
Affected passengers can go to ba.com/strike for the latest flight updates or contact their travel consultant for flight schedule updates.
Flights on BA CityFlyer, SUN-AIR and Comair are not affected.
SOUTH AFRICAN AIRWAYS
Maintenance at Blantyre’s Chileka International Airport continue to affect SAA’s operations. From 31 August to 31 October, SAA customers will travel between Johannesburg and Lilongwe on an SAA-operated aircraft, and then between Lilongwe and Blantyre on an Ethiopian Airlines flight.
The two airlines share a partnership that allows seamless connection between the two carriers. Re-ticketing must be completed on or before 02 September. A full refund of the unused portion/ticket will only be considered once other alternate flight options have been considered.
