British Airways chief says flights will go ahead despite third strike threat

British Airways (BA) chairman Willie Walsh has said the airline will fly 100% of its long-haul flights this summer, whether or not a third strike takes place.

Walsh said BA will not be grounded by the latest cabin crew strikes, and also hopes to fly the majority of its short-haul flights, City A.M. has reported

Unite the union is expected to inform BA it will hold another ballot of its 11,000 cabin crew members over further strikes, which will be the third round of stoppages in seven months.

With a ballot usually taking three to four weeks, the strike could hit during the August holiday season.
