BA attorney John Cavanagh argued that the union should have specified whether the pilots polled were in long-haul or short-haul fleets. Although the date of industrial action still remains unclear, Cavanagh said it was "likely to commence on or about Aug. 7."
Union lawyer Simon Cheetham says the union wants the power to call a strike between Aug. 7 and January 2020. The union says accuses BA of making massive profits on the back of sacrifices made during hard times.
