Virgin Atlantic faces prospect of its first ever strike just as it celebrates landmark anniversary

18 June 2011

Virgin Atlantic could be hit by its first-ever strike as flight crew, affecting British holidaymakers as they jet off over the summer.

The airline, which has just celebrated 25 years since its first transatlantic flight to Miami, is hopeful it can avoid a walkout by pilots over pay.

The British Airline Pilots Association (BALPA) is currently polling its members about strikes at the carrier and the result is due out next week.

A walkout could begin at the end of this month or the start of July just as millions of Britons are leaving the UK for their holidays.
