ComairFin24 reports that the strike by the British Airline Pilots' Association (BALPA) would not affect British Airways flights operated by Comair in South Africa, a spokesperson for the airline confirmed on Monday.  

Comair operates under its low-fare airline brand, kulula.com, as well as under the British Airways livery, as part of a license agreement.  Bloomberg reported earlier that British Airways cancelled hundreds of flights as chances dwindled for a breakthrough in negotiations with the BALPA.  It was expected that disruptions would mainly affect London.  The issue relates to a pay dispute.
