Virgin Atlantic says flight operations will “continue as normal” over Easter following reports cabin crew were considering strike action.
The Telegraph reported on Monday (March 18) cabin crews could walk out over a new pay deal, which it said could potentially jeopardise Easter holiday plans.
However, both Virgin and the Unite union, which has lodged a pay claim with the airline, said there would be no strikes at Easter.
In a statement, Unite said negotiations over its pay claim were ongoing and, when finalised, would be put to members in a ballot.
Moreover, a Unite spokesperson told TTG there simply wasn’t enough time to ballot members on action that would impact travel at Easter.
A Virgin Atlantic spokesperson added: “We’re still in discussions with our crew and the Unite union regarding pay and allowances.
“We want to reassure all of our customers that our flying operation will continue as normal over Easter.”
