British Airways flights in SA not affected by pilot strike in UK

The strike by the British Airline Pilots' Association (BALPA) does not affect British Airways flights operated by Comair in South Africa, a spokesperson for the airline confirmed on Monday.

Comair operates under its low-fare airline brand, kulula.com, as well as under the British Airways livery, as part of a license agreement.

Bloomberg reported earlier that British Airways cancelled hundreds of flights as chances dwindled for a breakthrough in negotiations with the BALPA. It was expected that disruptions will affect mainly London.

The issue relates to a pay dispute.
