LONDON - British Airways cabin crew walked out for the 14th day yesterday in an on-and-off strike over pay, benefits and working conditions, and a union leader said disruptions could continue into the summer. Striking cabin crew walked off their jobs on May 24 for five days and began the new round of strikes on 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 per cent of its long-haul flights, compared to the 60 per cent it had operated during last week's strike, and 55 per cent of short-haul flights, up from 50 per cent last week.
