BA pilots could call off strike if airline talks nice


British Airways pilots could call off the proposed September strike if the airline agrees to come back to the negotiating table.

That's the word from the British Airline Pilots Association (BALPA), which said they had put forward a new proposal to the British Airways Chief Executive Officer Alex Cruz.

They added that the strikes could still go ahead if the airline continues to refuse meaningful discussions.

Meanwhile, the airline said it would meet the union for "constructive talks, on the basis that there are no pre-conditions to those talks".

Last month, the BALPA had announced that the pilots would go on strike in September in a dispute over pay.
