Thomas Cook has said a revised flight schedule lined up in case of a pilots' strike for today will still go ahead, despite the dispute being called off.

Yesterday, the British Airline Pilots' Association (Balpa) said it had agreed to enter binding arbitration with the travel firm to end the row over pay. As a result, the strike proposed for today, a three-day strike planned from 12 October and a four-day strike from 19 October, have all been called off.

Thomas Cook said:

Even though the strike will now not take place, we are not going to change the revised schedule for flights on 6 October. This is to avoid any further disruption to our customers' travel plans.

Affected customers have been contacted to advise them of their new departure time.

Balpa's general secretary, Brian Strutton, said:

Our members voted to end this dispute by binding arbitration, which Thomas Cook has now agreed to. I am pleased that we have been able to find a peaceful way of resolving the pilots’ pay dispute without further disruption to passengers.
