British Airways reported that it was able to reinstate some flights last weekend that initially were canceled due to a strike by the Unite union, which represents the airline's cabin crews. The carrier cited better-than-expected crew turnout as reason for the rescheduled flights. While that job action has ended, Unite is threatening another strike for March 27-30; in response, British Airways has posted a revised flight schedule for those dates online at britishairways.com. Meanwhile, the union representing Lufthansa's pilots, Vereinigung Cockpit, announced that the pilots will stage a four-day strike beginning on April 13. The union called off a similar strike in February, but talks have broken down regarding a 21-day pay freeze proposed by the German airline.
