British tourists flying this summer to Spain could have their travel plans ruined after threats of a new wave of strikes by BA pilots over pay.

 British Airways have announced plans to vote on possible strike action if their pay demands are not met.

Three unions which include over 40,000 employees have rejected the latest pay deal offered to them by the company and therefore a vote will take place on whether to enforce strikes throughout the summer.

BA staff have joined forces with fellow unions with Unite and GMB to tackle their grievances.

BA pilots receive an annual salary of £150,000 per year along with an hourly rate whilst in the air. However the union have been in talks with the airline since November last year but talks have since broken down. The latest offer from the airline has been deemed as “too little, too late” by the union.
