British Airways has said that it will offer refunds and re-bookings for passengers booked on cancelled flights.

Flights on BA CityFlyer, SUN-AIR and Comair are not affected

The airline said that it is exploring options to supplement its fleet by using aircraft and crew from other airlines (wet-leasing), and is also working with its partner airlines to schedule larger aircraft to take the maximum number of customers.

The BALPA says that the strike action will cost British Airways around £40 million per day.
