British Airways Cancels Most Flights Worldwide As Pilots Go On Strike
Globally 1,45,000 fliers, including in India, likely to be affected

Indian and global travellers were left stranded on Monday when British Airways cancelled “nearly 100 per cent” of its flights following British Airline Pilots’ Association (BALPA) strike action.

The agony for passengers could continue on Tuesday and also on September 27 as the industrial action by pilots is scheduled for these days as well.

“With no details from BALPA on which pilots would strike, we had no way of predicting how many would come to work or which aircraft they are qualified to fly, so we had no option but to cancel nearly 100 per cent our flights,” the airline said in statement.
