Over 1,500 British Airways flights canceled over pilots strike 

The British Airways company has cancelled over 1,500 flights as a result of strikes of pilots scheduled for Monday and Tuesday, media reported Sunday.

According to The Telegraph newspaper, the strikes will affect around 280,000 people and cost 80 million pounds ($98.2 million).

On August 23, the British Airline Pilots Association (BALPA) announced that it called on its members to strike from September 9-10, and on September 27, following disputes over pay and perks cuts.

The company called on the passengers to stay home if their flight has been cancelled.
