British Airways’ two week strike action – 19th July onwards

British Airways have announced that there will be another two weeks of disruption for travellers this month. Strike action is planned from 19th July. When does it start, when does it end and why are staff walking? Keep reading.

British Airways Strike Dates

BA cabin crew are in the middle of a long running dispute over pay. They have voted to start more strike action on 19th July and to extend this walk-out to two weeks. The news comes just three days after staff took part in a 16 day long stoppage.

During the last strike British Airways used aircrafts from parent company Qatar to fly passengers to their destinations. Qatar had airplanes not in use, due to the cancellation of all Doha flights recently.

How Passengers Will Be Affected

BA claim they will once again use the resources and staff of their parent company to offset any potential disruption to travellers. Last week a few flights from Heathrow were cancelled, but all others went ahead as planned.

A spokesperson said: “We will operate a full schedule at Gatwick and London City airports as well as the vast majority of our Heathrow schedule.

“We will merge a very small number of Heathrow services, and all affected customers are being contacted in advance and will be rebooked to alternative flights.”
