BA Breakthrough

The Transport and General Workers Union have called off its planned two-day strike by thousands of British Airways cabin crew.

Last minute talks this morning have prevented the action that would’ve caused disruption and lengthy delays to BA air passengers.

Speaking to the media BA executives have announced that an agreement has been reached on the key issue of pay and the management of sickness absence.

Plans to reinstate as many flights as possible are underway, but the agreement comes too late to prevent many cancellations.

Two 72-hour strikes due to take place during February have also been called off.
