Simon Calder to answer your travel questions live on Thursday

As we look ahead to the peak summer holiday season, British Airways staff look set to announce strike dates for later this month.

BA passenger service agents at Heathrow are likely to reveal walkout dates this week, after the majority voted in favour of industrial action last month.

The dispute involves 700 BA personnel known as “above the wing” ground staff in terminals 3 and 5 at Heathrow airport, who are striking over pay.

During the slump in aviation caused by the coronavirus pandemic, their wages were cut by 10 per cent – in line with other groups of British Airways employees. BA has offered a one-off payment of 10 per cent this year, but the workers want the cash restored into their basic pay.
