British Airways Cabin Crew Continue Strike

British Airways cabin crew are striking for a 14th day against the airline in a protracted dispute about working conditions and job security.

Striking cabin crew walked off their jobs May 24 for five days and began the new round of strikes Sunday after the latest round of talks collapsed. The cabin crew union has called for another five days of strikes beginning on June 5 if there is no settlement.

The airline says it plans to fly more than 70 percent of its long-haul flights, compared to the 60 percent it had operated during last week's strike, and 55 percent of short-haul flights, up from 50 percent last week.
