ISRAEL FLIGHTS AFFECTED AS BRITISH AIRWAYS PILOTS.

If the strike goes ahead, British Airways management has threatened to suspend discounted family travel packages for up to three years.

British Airways pilots will commence a two-day strike on Monday, leaving almost 1,600 flights grounded, including scheduled flights to Israel.

The majority of British Airways’ 4,300 pilots based at London’s Heathrow and Gatwick airports are participating in the strike, which follows a work dispute between pilots’ union BALPA and British Airways management over increased salaries.

Ahead of the expected strike, British Airways cancelled “thousands” of flights throughout booking websites and other travel arrangement mediums. Affected passengers have been urged not to travel to airports.

British Airways operates three daily flights to Israel from London Heathrow Airport. Passengers who booked flights on the days of the strike were notified by email that their flights were cancelled.

If the strike goes ahead, British Airways management has threatened to suspend discounted family travel packages for up to three years.
