The British Airways Pilots have called off the strike planned for the 27th September.
The move, described as a way to allow calm and reflection to return – is a masterful way of pushing the PR responsibility back on BA. By doing this the pilots are showing themselves to be reasonable, having made their protest leaving BA holding the baby in more ways than one.
BA now has to manage how it manages cancelled flights and what it does to prevent another strike.
In the meantime the airline is under investigation for its chaotic management of the most recent cancellation debacle.
