May 25 - The British Airways (BA) cabin crew began a five-day strike yesterday after no resolution to the issue of wages, job cuts and working conditions was found over the weekend.

Meanwhile, flights from Gatwick and City will not be affected by the strike. A further two five-day strikes are planned if the dispute cannot be resolved."Our operations around the world have got off to a good start this morning," BA said in a statement yesterday.
