EDIT: You should ignore this article. The official British Airways strike dates have now been announced and can be found here.
With many thanks to Flyertalk posters who have been digging around on ba.com this evening.
It is possible that British Airways has been given strike dates by the pilots union BALPA this evening.
Non-refundable tickets for flights from London Heathrow and London Gatwick – plus BA1 to New York from London City – seem to have been removed from sale on the following dates:
Wednesday 11th September to Monday 16th September
Thursday 26th September to Saturday 28th September
IF this is due to a strike – and for clarity we don’t know this – it is potentially not for all the dates listed. There may be some contingency at the end to allow planes to reposition and to allow passengers to travel whose flights have been cancelled on earlier days.
As a reminder, flights from London City – except for New York – will operate as normal whatever happens.
More to come, potentially on Friday morning.
For 100% clarity though, we do NOT know for certain that the removal of tickets for sale is due to a pilot strike.
