HUN­DREDS of hol­i­day­mak­ers suf­fered travel chaos yes­ter­day as Thomas Cook pilots staged a 24-hour strike in a dis­pute over pay.

The walk-out by Bri­tish Air­line Pilots’ As­so­ci­a­tion (Balpa) mem­bers went ahead af­ter talks failed to re­solve the row. Thomas Cook said all flights would go ahead, although some were de­layed by up to four-and-a-half hours. Planes were be­ing crewed by non­strik­ing pilots and man­age­ment.

Balpa has an­nounced two more strikes for this Fri­day and on Oc­to­ber 6. HUN­DREDS of thou­sands of peo­ple have signed a pe­ti­tion urg­ing Trans­port for London to re­verse its de­ci­sion to strip Uber of its li­cence in the city.

Save Your Uber in London was set up af­ter it was an­nounced the firm would not have its li­cence re­newed when it ex­pires on Satur­day.

The pe­ti­tion had nearly 600,000 sig­na­tures last night, just one day af­ter be­ing launched.

TfL said Uber was “not fit” to op­er­ate in the cap­i­tal and took the de­ci­sion on the grounds of “pub­lic safety and se­cu­rity im­pli­ca­tions”.
