British Airways strike due to start at midnight

British Airways pilots will begin a two-day strike at midnight in their ongoing dispute over pay and conditions.
Passengers are being told not to go to airports and BA says most have made alternative arrangements.
Both BA and the pilots' union Balpa have indicated that they are willing to start new talks.
Nonetheless the vast majority of BA flights taking off from the UK on Monday and Tuesday have been cancelled.
There will also be a knock-on effect to flights before and after the strike, because planes and pilots need to be in position for prior and subsequent journeys.
