LONDON City Airport will be unaffected by the latest BA strike action.

British Airways will operate flights as normal from the Royal Docks airport during new strikes starting next week.

A ban on striking was overturned by judges today and union Unite will go ahead with a series of five day strikes on Monday unless an agreement can be reached.

Cabin crew had originally been told by the High Court on Monday they could not go ahead with the strike as the union had not reported the ballot to its members accurately.

A panel today ruled in favour of overturning the injunction by 2-1.

The business class service to New York from London City will also be unaffected.
