Virgin Atlantic Pilot Strike Off – Breaking News

Posted on 7 July 2011

Published reports claim that an offer from Virgin Atlantic to its pilot’s union has enough merit that the threat of a strike during the peak summer travel season has been called off.

In one article, Jim McAuslan, general secretary of pilot union Balpa is quoted as saying, “Pilots have never wished to inconvenience the travelling public, especially those looking forward to summer holidays. We have therefore lifted the threat of strike action.”

Travelers are still cautioned to carefully check any airline’s status pertaining to labor actions before committing to inflexible (non-change/non-refundable) summer travel planning and airline ticket purchases.
