BA pilots are paid an average basic salary of more than £150,000 a year, plus an hourly rate when they fly.

The unions have been in joint talks with the airline since November but the negotiations have broken down, and Balpa yesterday described BA’s pay offer as ‘too little too late’.

BA said it is ‘extremely disappointed [Balpa] has raised the prospect of a ballot for industrial action’.
