British Airways cancels nearly all flights for today, tomorrow due to pilot strike
British Airways has canceled nearly all of its flights for today and tomorrow, including two flights in Newark, after pilots went on strike.
The British Airline Pilots Association called for the strike over a pay dispute with the airline.
According to the airline, they were forced to cancel nearly all flights because it had no way of knowing which pilots may show up.
The British Airline Pilots Association’s website says they represent more than 10,000 pilots in the United Kingdom -- more than 85 percent of all commercial pilots who fly there.
The association is calling on the airline to share more of its profits with its pilots, while the airline argues the pay increase already offered is more than fair.
The cancellations include two flights from Newark Liberty International Airport to London's Heathrow Airport scheduled for later today.
