British Airways flight attendants will walk out next week after the carrier declined to extend their right to strike in return for renewed pay talks following the rejection of the latest offer, according to the Unite union.

So-called “mixed fleet” cabin crew, who work on both short- and long-haul flights from London’s Heathrow airport, will take action for 48 hours from Tuesday, Jan. 10, the labor group said in a statement on its website.
